The tree is commonly known as “Ekitafeli” in Luganda, though it takes up a number of names basing on the country of consumption.The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer - 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.


With aroma similar to pineapple, the flavor of the fruit has been described as a combination of strawberries and apple, and sour citrus flavor notes, contrasting with an underlying creamy texture reminiscent of coconut or banana. Soursop is widely promoted (sometimes as "graviola") as an alternative cancer treatment, but there is no medical evidence it is effective for treating cancer or any disease.
