Also referred to as Graviola, Guanábana, Soursap and Guyabano, Soursop is the fruit of Annona muricata, a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree, native to tropical regions of the Caribbean and the Americas. Its cultivation has now spread to many other regions. Although the name would suggest that it's a sour fruit, Soursop actually has a perfectly balanced rich flavour and a mild aroma.
How about this for a description of its flavour?
A mixture of pineapple and strawberry, with citrus flavour notes, contrasting with an underlying creamy texture reminiscent of banana and coconut! The flesh is full of juice too, making it the perfect ingredient to use in a refreshing fruit shake. Simply add some ice, and natural sweetener if you desire, then blend for a few seconds.
A bit about this amazing fruit
The Soursop is light to dark green in colour and prickly, but comes in all different shapes and sizes. It can be up to 5kg in weight. The variation between mature Soursop fruits is considerable, with the smallest fruits weighing just 300g. When harvested, the Soursop fruits are firm, however, they ripen to a very soft texture within 4-7 days of harvesting.
When it comes to weather conditions, Soursop grows mostly in tropical climates and needs a very warm environment. Temperatures below 5°c (41°F) can be harmful to leaves and small branches, and temperatures below 3°C (37°F) can cause the fruit to become dry and no longer suitable for consumption.
We predominantly source our Soursop from the Caribbean islands, which are renowned for producing great quality Soursop. At various points in the season we also source Soursop from Tien Giang province in Vietnam. This Vietnamese Soursop is well-known for its superb flavour paired with a relatively low fibre and seed content.
The Soursop fruit is best when simply eaten out of hand, chilled if you prefer, and of course when perfectly ripe.
However, it is a particularly versatile fruit and is consumed across the world in different ways, including juices, fruit shakes, cocktails, sorbet/ice cream and confectionery.
The nutritional value per 100g of this popular fruit comprises 68 kcal of energy and 16g of carbohydrates plus many vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, vitamin B1 and vitamin B3. The vitamin C content is equivalent to approximately 25% of an adult's recommended daily intake.
