Soursop fruiting in living room.
« on: April 20, 2019, 10:02:07 AM »
In 2005 I sowed a seed of annona muricata . Seedling flowered for the first time in the age of five.
Since then it flowered several times each year, but because of long period between flowering of single flowers, it was impossible to pollinate it.
Finally this winter, flowers opened shortly one by one. So I pollinated with one day old pollen.
On 3.24. it was clear that one is pollinated < the right one from this pair>.

I used the pollen from the flower on the leff side of this picture.
On 4.12. I recognized strange thing. The flower from which I took the pollen, started to separate too <on the right side of this picture>.

So now I have two fruits.

Congratulations! Looking good. Don't think many have succeeded at fruiting guanabana indoors.

You can pollinate guanabana with a single flower.

Awesome,  Tk for sharing I wonder if my wife would say something if I brought my 25 gal Guanabana into the living room.

Is that just next to a window or do you have a grow light?

Today I tasted my very first indoor grown soursop fruit.
It was very pleasant surprise. Very strong sweet taste resembles a bit overripe Pineapple.
Very soft pulp. Seeds small, relatively low number.







Seeds from whole fruit.

Radoslav, would you know the humidity level of room where the plant is? And where did you get the original seed from?

That is awesome, but I bet picking up leaves off the living room floor got old somewhere in the last 14 years. My soursop sheds leaves like crazy. Although, it could have made a lot of tea.
