Soursop is an edible fruit, with its origin linking back to Central America and the Caribbean. The fruit grows on the Annona muricate, a tree reaching 9 meters in height, and prefers climates with high humidity and warm winters. The fruit has a prickly green outside, with a juicy white centre. The tree reaches its full height after approximately 6 years, however, begins to bear fruit after about 3 to 5 years.
Soursop Puree has a beige almost white color. It has an exotic flavor which is not too sweet and reminds a bit of a combination of strawberry and pineapple with slight citrus notes. The texture is creamy like coconut milk or banana puree. It is also known under the name Graviola or Cherimoya.
