Soursop Pro Tips
Our soursop will come on the cusp of being unripe and ripe but may arrive fully unripe or fully ripe. It is ripe when it is soft to the touch (for us, the softer the better) and an imprint is left when pressure is applied to it with your finger. The color of the skin may darken slightly, and there may be "scars" but these factors DO NOT correlate to the quality of the fruit inside the skin. There are many ways to consume soursop.
