Important Info: This product is lower grade soursop for juice (Jugo de Guanabana). If you want premium soursop for eating raw, we recommend ordering the Premium Soursop Box. When using soursop for juice or smoothies, you MUST remove the seeds first. Do not blend or juice the seeds!!
Origin: Soursop is a fruit native to South and Central America. It grows in the Caribbean and very recently began growing in Miami. It is in the same genus, Annona, as cherimoya and is in the Annonaceae family.
Flavor Profile: The flavor has been described as a combination of strawberry and pineapple, with sour citrus flavor notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavor reminiscent of coconut or banana.
How To Juice: Put the pulp on a mesh strainer and keep stirring with a spoon until all the juice and pulp fall through. This method also makes it easier to remove the seeds from the pulp. Once the seeds are separated from the pulp and juice, you can blend the pulp and juice with dates and water or nut milk and enjoy!
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds of fruit
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds
- Extra Large Box contains up to 16-20 pounds
- Bulk Box contains up to 34-40 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
Every week we sort out the soursop harvests by quality grade. Premium and not premium (#2). We ship the premium soursop to our soursop box and overnight and premium variety box customers. The #2 soursop usually gets resold to a grocery store. We want to make the non premium (#2 soursop) available to our customers who are interested in purchasing soursop for juicing. The #2 soursop are not always great quality for eating raw, but they can still be made into a delicious juice or smoothie when ripe. You can also cook unripe soursop to make an alkaline plant based seafood alternative.
