The soursop (Annona muricata) is a deciduous low, erect fruity tree. The sour sop fruit has an inner cream colored, fragrant, juicy, and somewhat fibrous edible flesh.

The plant is grown for its 20–30 cm (7.9–11.8 in) long, prickly, green fruit, which can have a mass of up to 6.8 kg (15 lb).

The pulp is also used to make fruit nectar, smoothies, fruit juice drinks, as well as candies, sorbets, and ice cream flavorings.
