Also called Graviola, Guanabana, Custard Apple and Brazilian Paw Paw, Soursop is a large, spiny, green tropical fruit.
I remember the soursop fruit well.
I recall my mum telling me that soursop was brought into Nigeria by the West Indian women who emigrated to Nigeria after Independence.
Well, whatever the case, I can definitely remember soursoup trees in the many West Indian homes I visited as a child in the city of Ibadan.
It`s sweet, creamy pulp just oozed goodness when ripe and ready for plucking off the tree.
Beyond just being a great fruit to feast on, soursop contains fatty compounds called acetogenins.
Soursop’s acetogenins are the compounds that have been most studied, especially for their potential to prevent or slow the growth of cancer.
It`s Saturday…all day.
