Congratulations on the fruit.  How does this compare in quality with the other relatives. Looks interesting to grow.

Would rather not be in Florida.

But yes i can and have shipped wood carvings to many countries. We (my wife and i) run a crafts export business here. Let me know if your interested in something in particular.


I know there has been some farms for sale in the past in Puerto Rico. You may have a good chance finding something there.

I am confused about this .BTW how to find out BRIX ?
Thank you Luc and Stephen

You need a brix refractometer to find the brix. Brix is the sugar content of a liquid solution. You place drops of the juice from fruit on the brix refractometer diode area to get a reading.

There is a lot of trichocereus that have good fruit as well. I am growing quite a few different types of fruiting cacti.  I have about 10 different types of Ceres sp. Also started eulychnia acida from seed about 2 years ago.  A few of the seedlings are finally starting to size up.


Nice pictures, from the pics it looks sweet.  Has that shiny look when the fruit has a nice brix level.

It depends what area of Port Saint Lucie your in for soursop.  I have a neighbor who planted out soursop from seed and his plants are now about 7 years old and fruiting.

If your in PSL West it may be harder to grow some stuff like soursop. I had young soursop seedlings that survived 37 to 39f for about 2 nights and some of them did not defoliate. House is only 1mi from the river though and closer to intercoastal. It's definitely a solid zone 10a.

I highly doubt they will survive more then a very mild winter.  I lost a wax jambu in mission viejo due to a cold early spring storm which dropped some hail on the plants during the day.

Yeah you should do dairy goats,  chickens, and rabbits would also work. However you want to focus on a few things at first and not get in over your head.

Look into biochar, cover crops, mycorrhizae, compost,  and other topics.


Wax jambu after 3 years, I was unable to take waterboxx off.

They don't need any additional water once I took off from trees after a year.

No problem guys, roblack I don't have any scions unfortunately. It was a friends tree which he gave me a fruit from.

out of seeds, xshen let me see if I can muster 6 seeds order.

I'll take 6. I'm very close to you. Can you send by first class in padded envelope?

Did you actually eat the fruit? How does it compare to the regular soursop fiber wise?

Yes, I ate the fruit. Its very good. It comes from the same tree as

The flesh has very little fiber, its more like Cherimoya texture mixed with a little slightly fiber mango texture. The fiber is easy to chew and enjoyable to eat. The flavor is a burst of aromatic sweet and sour. I was told that it sets 2 crops a year in Boca Raton. The second late summer crop is much sweeter, this spring crop was already amazing sweet sour flavor.

I have 20 seeds left to buy.

I am out of seeds if everyone confirms. I am just waiting for payment to confirm. If someone backs out I will update.

I am growing many different cacti in PSL. Cereus sp. perform great and require no irrigation and little care. Stenocereus gummosus does well in a container, grows quite slow though.

I also have Echinopsis sp. selections for fruit that seem to do well. Opuntia sp. can be hit or miss depending on the selections.

I have lost several types of cacti to humidity and excess moisture.
