Item details

Soursop / Graviola / Annona muricata / Corossol seeds 25 pcs
Harvest 2018

Scientific Name: Annona muricata L.

A low-branching, bushy tree originating in Central America, Annona muricata is known as soursop in English and guanabana in El Salvador and other Spanish-speaking countries. The soursop tree, which can grow from 25 to 30 feet tall, produces an oval-shaped fruit with tender yellow-green skin and white, juicy flesh often made into drinks, sherbet, preserves and sweets. This is an evergreen broad leaved tree whose every part is useful and has medicinal properties. Grown in a variety of countries, including Mexico, the West Indies, northern South America, China, Australia and Africa, soursop prefers a tropical climate and cannot survive a frost, often suffering damage at 30 degrees Fahrenheit and dying at 26 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take the seeds and soak them in warm water overnight. The next day, plant them 1/2 inch deep in sterile seed-starting mix.
Keep the soil constantly moist by spraying it with water. It should germinate within 2-4 weeks.
Once the soursop has germinated, make sure you keep it in a partially sunny location, a well drained soil, and protected from strong winds.
Keep at least 20 feet from other trees or plants and mulch heavily with compost as soursop has shallow roots.
Once truck diameter reaches 1/2 to 3/4 inch, prune the tree back to 30 inches in height.
Once new shoots begin, choose the most vertical shoot to be the central leader.
After cutting off any other growth, leave the central shoot (the most vertical one) and force all other shoots into horizontal positions. You can do this by using clothespins or twine!
Your tree will grow best when grown in well-drained sandy to sandy loam type soils. The important thing to remember is that the soil drains well and the trees roots get a shower and not ever end up in a bathtub. Soursops do not like wet feet! U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 10 and 11 in rich, well-drained soil with 5 to 6.5 pH suit this warm-weather plant best.
