Is this area too small for a soursop tree?
« on: April 17, 2022, 04:51:26 PM »
So there is a seedling popped up right beside the pepper plant. Can a full grown fruiting  soursop be grown so close to the house? If not, can I graft to the seedling once itís matured and control the stock width and growth that way? If not Iíll just dig up the seedling

Feel free to pm me if you have any ANNONACEAE for sale‼️

Mine is in a similar/smaller space than this and it grew and gave fruits just fine(after 8 years or so)...granted there is way more soil beneath all of this...try to make some space from the wall tho.

I also had a soursop in a 3 gallon container and eventually gave me 1 fruit. Maybe you can grow them in a 15 gallon.

soursop is a medium to large tree.. mine is about 15 ft tall and about 10 feet wide.. the space that you have them in might be ok, but one tree will take the whole space and cover the whole wall in about 5 years time..
it i were you, i would try to relocate them to another area away from the house, the roots might damage the water pipes and/or the house's foundation

I recall reading that soursop has relatively shallow roots, but even so I would move it a bit further from the house.

Off the topic, is that sugar cane you are planted?  Sugar cane should plant horizontal not vertical.

I don't see a soursop seedling in there.
