The Soursop aka Guanabana is a tropical evergreen fruit tree native to the tropical regions of the Americas and the Caribbean.  Soursop's fruit has an exotic flavor and appearance. The fruit has soft white creamy flesh and tastes like an exotic combination of coconut, pineapple, and papaya! Soursop (or Guanabana) has a unique creamy but also slightly gritty pear-like texture. 

NEW! We are now offering Soursop fruit trees in our Large Coconut Coir (1 gal.) pots that are GRAFTED!!! Grafted Soursop's are SUPER RARE! Soursop is already a somewhat challenging rare fruit tree to grow, so having them grafted gives you a HUGE advantage! Shorten the length of time to fruit and increase production with our new grafted Soursop trees that you won't find anywhere else.

Annona (from Taíno annon) is a genus of flowering plants in the pawpaw/sugar apple family, Annonaceae. The generic name derives from anón, a Hispaniolan Taíno word for the fruit.
