Soursop (Annona muricata) seeds germinate in about 2-3 months. 林琴果/刺果番荔枝種子約2-3個月發芽.

Tropical fruit.  This fruit has bump surface.  Its inner structure/flesh looks like same genus fruit.   The taste is not that sweet, more on the acidic side although very flavorful.  The after taste in the mouth is very fragrant and flavorful, making me want to savor the after taste longer.   So I realize it will be great to use the edible flesh (after removing peel and seeds) and make juice/smoothie with other sweeter fruit.  That will make the perfect combination!  🙂

熱帶水果.  這種水果果皮有短的軟刺/凸起.  切開後的果肉/構造很同屬的水果很雷同.  果肉白,味偏酸但有多層次感的風味.  食後的口感果香味較濃郁,水果的風味也經久不散,除了果味稍為偏酸不偏甜外,其水果風味及口感倒是蠻不錯的.  若一般喜歡偏甜水果的人可以將可食的果肉(去掉不可食的果皮及種子後) 與偏甜的水果一起打成果汁或奶昔飲用可以將甜味酸味中和.

Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun location to partial shade location.  Tolerant poor soil.  Creaming white flowers in late spring to early summer.  seeds are toxic if ingested.  Propagate by seeds, cuttings or grafting.  Medicinal.

容易栽種.  最好栽種於全日照到半日照處.  植株耐貧瘠土壤.  淡黃接近白色的花於春末夏初盛開.  種子有毒勿食.  繁殖以種子或扦插高壓/嫁接方式來進行.  有藥用價值.

Mature size: 20′-30′(H) X 15′-20′(W).  USDA Zones:10-11.  Plants are evergreen in warm climate.

成熟株高20-30呎,寬幅15-20呎.  喜熱不耐寒.  在熱帶環境為常綠.

      • Thanks and I not sure whether it will grow in my garden as my house in England is slightly uphill and it is always so cold in here. I would love to plant in my garden and thanks for seeds and would love it.
        Love to hear your opinion whether my garden is suitable for this as I don’t have any green house.

      • Well, it prefers warm climate, it is evergreen in tropical if growing in colder climate must be in pot over winter indoors or growing in winter heated green house. When it feels coldness will drop leaves for sure. But good thing that growing from seeds, few will try to survive in new climate and tolerant different suitable hardy zone. — I have propagate some plants, for example, my French lilac (very fragrant double white flowered) seedlings, last winter (its first winter) and this year (the 2nd winter) in pot in zone 6 staying evergreen! Which it is unheard of. Same with one of my large bloomed Clematis seedling, it is the first cold winter and still stay evergreen also unheard of! 🙂 So, even though it is long process to growing from seeds I do believe it is worthy to make such attempt!
