Soursop is the fruit of Annona muricata, a broadleaf, flowering, evergreen tree. The genus Annona, of the custard apple tree family, Annonaceae all have edible fruit, refered to as “soursop” due to their slightly acidic taste when ripe. With an aroma similar to pineapple, the flavor of the fruit has been described as a combination of strawberries and apple with sour citris-flavored notes, contrasting with an underlying thick creamy texture reminiscent of a banana. The flesh of the fruit consists of an edible, white pulp, some fiber, and a core of indigestible black seeds. Soursop trees are adapted to areas of high humidity and relatively warm winters.
