This is known as GUYABANO. Only the white fleshy part of the fruit is edible. I make fresh fruit shakes out of GUYABANO. To put a festive mood to my white shakes I drop green food coloring.

I put in an order for over 300 dollars worth of plants and was told that morning on Memmorial day when we called they would be open i drove 4hours to find my order wasnt ready and they decided to leave early. I had to drive back 4 more hours to orlando for nothing called several times with no reply that day. a week later they called asking if ide like to drive back down to pick up my order! told them after seeing in person how bad the plants in his stock looked and all the inconvenience and inconcideration. he knew where he could stick his plants.
i will never order plants from this place (EVER AGAIN) word of advice if i was you i would spend my money elswhere and save myself the hassles of the pests and diseases that are sure to acompany your purchase from TOP Tropicals.

Well, you sold me the seeds for this tree back in December of '10, and there was a lot of pessimism about anything growing from the seeds due to your miracle fruit seeds always coming up blanks. But one tree DID germanate, and now it stands about six feet tall. Since it went into the ground three years ago, the bloody tree actually is growing at a rate of 2 feet-a-year. Wife did some online research on this tree and basically found that the WHOLE thing, pretty much, is edible. Our first effort will involve turning the leaves into some tea sometime soon. The tree, still, is in its early adolescent stage, and the leave aren't as numerous as they should be if we're going to start removing them to make tea. Nor has the tree started flowering yet. The woman from this site who sold me the seed explained that the trunk needs to be two inches in diameter before it starts fruiting, and that may not happen for another year or two. Anyway, the tree is great! Get your hands on one if you can. They appear to be a quick-growing tree. The only drawback is that they take their time becoming stiff enough to support themselves. You will have to stake your tree as it grows. Just a warning. That should be enough for now. Good luck.

guyabano is one of the best tasting/most delicious fruit,and also anti-cancer.best eaten when cold.can be found anywhere in the philippines and can be planted anywhere in the world,even in a sandy soil.we used that fruit in the philippines to deworming the children.by simply eating the ripe fruit,in less than one hour or one day.the worms will get from the stomach of the child,after discharging in the toilet.

Well, it is coming up on the tree's fourth year, and still no fruit! It at least stands 12-feet-tall. It has been growing like gangbusters these last couple of years. The leaves after they're picked and boiled in some water will yield a delicious tea! The only issue with the leaves is that you have to let them mature for some time on the tree before you pick them for the tea. That really is the only issue when it comes to making the tea. Fortunately, there are other people in the area who also own one of these trees and they like to sell them to local markets who then make them available for those of us who live around here. Soon, hopefully, this tree will be providing me with some of the same sorts of fruits for everyone to enjoy as well.

Well, the little tree is approaching its FIFTH year! It roughly appears to stand 15 feet tall. When first investigating the tree online on some web posting somewhere, it claimed that the tree only would need three years and a roughly three-inch diameter to reach its fruiting age, and this seemed great! Since the coming and going of those three years and those threr inches, another web site explained that it would take seven years for the tree to mature enough to its fruiting stage.

It ALSO ends up, based on the tree's appearance that it LOVES the crappy nutrient-free SFL soil into which it went late in 2010! It has out grown all the other citrus trees in my backyard! So, if you too are living in SFL and you have about 25+ sq feet for a new tree, this may be the tree you want! It appears to be a popular tree to sell on Craigslist. Someone there always appears to be selling one. Usually, they at least are a few years old, so you won't have to wait as long for your tree to start fruiting. Mine grew from a seed purchased from this web site.

For the fewer than half-dozen who view these things, my guyabano finally fruited. Your web site sold me the seeds back at the end of '10, and only ONE seed initially appeared to germanate. Buying seeds via the mail always is a tricky experience, anyway. The FRUIT ARE HERE! A little shy of seven years is what it took! The tree really appears to be acclimated to the sandy soil we have down here in S. FL. because the tree has out grown all the other citrus trees with which it shares my tiny backyard. They all are on the order of a couple-of-years older than the guyabano, but the latter tree now makes all of them look like chumps! Earlier this evening, the wife counted FOUR fruits growing. So, that is excellent news. The hope eventually is to get the seeds from the fruits to sprout new trees and then simply to graft more mature parts of this tree into these newly-developed root systems. Fruits in matter of months vs. a matter of years!

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful
