BRING HOME THE FLAVOR OF THE TROPICS
Have you ever tasted the delicious Guanabana during a visit to the Caribbean? Its delicious strawberry/apple flavor brings you right back to the tropics. Imagine growing this plant in your garden. Now if you call the subtropical southeast U.S. your home – you can!
The Guanabana or Soursop can grow as high as 20 feet over its lifetime. Best in zones 10-11, this tree is a fabulous addition to your outdoor garden. It puts forth beautiful yellow/green flowers throughout the summer with thick flower petals covered in soft hair. The delicious prickly fruits are dark green and oval in shape.
Grown best in full to partial shade, the Guanabana requires little maintenance and only moderate amounts of water.
