Soursop, Graviolo or Custard Apple

I bought 2 fruits from this batch of soursop from the Tamu.  One for my father, the other one for our own consumption. Most of the soursop fruits are sold in Tamu market places, hard to find them in the supermarkets. 
The fruits were still not ripen yet when I bought them.  It was overripe when we checked on it after 3 days.  We quickly placed it into the fridge.  My better half and our girls like their fruits cold.
Soursop is a not a nice looking fruit, it has thorns all around the fruit but they won't hurt much when you touch them.
The flesh is soft and creamy, that's why it is also called Custard Apple.  Not many people like its sweet and sour taste.  My girls will take a bite or two if it is served cold.
there are seeds wrapped inside the flesh.  Soursop can be made into juices, and also into soup.  It contains Vitamin C, B, thiamin, riboflavin, naicin, calcium, phosphorus and small amount of iron,  There are many health benefits can be obtained by consuming this fruit.

The seeds look like this

  1. I bought one fruit too and it costs me RM12 each. The size is just 7 inches length. I have bought it over 2 weeks ago and it is still hard as the seller told me to eat when it turns soft.

  4. Dearest Agnes,
    Thanks for visiting my blog!
    Here I am and you cause me to have rindu sekali!
    Such fond memories of living and working on the island of Java for some three years.
    LOVE all the tropical fruits and the entire Indonesian food; wish we had that daily here. But that's not, unless I prepare it myself.
    Sending you hugs from Georgia, Amerika Serikat,
    Mariette
