Guanabana? (Soursop)

 

Facts & Revolutionary uses of the Soursop (Guanabana)

Soursop / Guanabana

If you haven’t heard about the delicious and nutritious Soursop, or  Guanabana, I’m very pleased to introduce to you this amazing fruit that has recently gained popularity because of it’s rich sour-sweet flavor but mostly because of it’s healing properties against cancer. I’ve put together some information about the Soursop for you to be able to identify it. Make sure that when you’re visiting Costa Rica you order yourself either a Guanabana juice at a sodita (traditional Costa Rican restaurant) or buy a ripe Soursop at the supermarket.

5. The Soursop fruit itself can reach between 10 to 40 inches long and weigh up to 4 Kilos.
