WHERE DOES GRAVIOLA (SOURSOP) COME FROM?
The plant is native from the Amazon jungle and the Caribbean Islands. Graviola tree leaves have been traditionally used for their various therapeutic properties throughout the years in the communities where it is native.
Graviola is the fruit of Annona muricata, a flowering evergreen tree that is best grown in areas of high humidity and relatively mild winters. Graviola goes by a lot of names around the world, including soursop, custard apple, guanabana, and Brazilian paw paw.
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
Graviola has been described as a cross between a green Granny Smith apple and a pineapple…on steroids.
The heart-shaped fruit generally grows to about 8-12 inches in size, is long, prickly, and green, and can weigh up to 15 Ib. The inside of the fruit consists of soft white pulp, fiber, and black seeds. The pulp is what’s often used to make fruit nectar, smoothies, juice, as well as some candies and ice cream flavors.
WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE?
Graviola has been described as tasting similar to a combination of strawberry and pineapple, with sour citrus notes and an underlying creamy flavor reminiscent of coconut or banana.
