Few fruits are as amazing as the humble soursop. It has the sweet fragrance of pineapples. Yet, a taste of it immediately takes us by surprise, reminding us of strawberries and apples, along with curious strains of citrus. Dig in deeper and you will come across a creamy, rich interior, that looks similar to a juicy banana.
Consuming soursop on a regular basis comes with a lot of health benefits. It is high in antioxidants and is extremely good for skin and hair. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels and has anti-inflammation properties as well.
Moreover, you can have it raw, make juices, sorbets, and even smoothies out of them. Fancy warm beverages? Make soursop tea! Or you can go a step further to whip up baked goods sweetened with your very own soursop.
However, one thing that stops people from getting this fruit is that they don’t know how to determine whether it is fresh or not. Another factor is the storage. But don’t worry; we’re here to help. In this blog, we will cover some of the important things that you should keep in mind when you are buying soursops.
How To Select Soursops?
This should be a cakewalk. Even a child can find the perfect soursop! What you have to do is look for a soursop that has dark green skin. If it’s of a lighter shade, this means that the soursop is still raw.
Then, move on to checking out the fleshy spines on the fruit’s exterior. Are there enough of them? If yes, then the soursop has passed the second quality assurance test. Finally, give the soursop a quick scan for blemishes and ghastly marks. Look for another one if there are too many bruises.
If you are looking for one that is to be consumed immediately, pick one that feels soft to touch. Want to keep in for later? Get one that you can ripen at home over the course of a few days.
What About Storage?
Unripe ones can be stored at room temperature. If you have got your hands on a juicy, ripe one, then this calls for refrigeration. The fruit will remain fresh for 48 hours in the fridge once you bring it home.
Want to eat it right now? Just slice it through the middle, get a spoon, do away with the seeds, and that’s it. Savor in the creamy fleshy bits waiting for you inside!
