|Soursop before ripe|
In Chris Doyle's guidebook it says: "It is a knobby green fruit which is ripe when it begins to go soft. It is really delicious, but messy to eat because of all the seeds. It can be blended with a little milk and ice to make an excellent drink." A friend even told us that this fruit has the power to prevent or even heal cancer! That made us really curious! (I found different articles regarding this matter in the web but want leave it to you to make up your mind if this sources are credible or not. I'll add some links at the end of this post.)
When I next went to the market I chose one of this quite ugly looking fruits. It was heavy and not yet ripe. But after 2-3 days it changed its color and went soft. That's what it looked like:
|ripe after 2-3 days|
|Soursop pulp with seeds|
|Soursop pulp without seeds|
Mmhhhh.... cool and creamy, that was well deserved!
My conclusion: I really should get a blender! In contrary to its effect on cancer it's obviously a proven fact that this fruit contains significant amounts of vitamin C, B1, B2 and is used as a herbal medicine among people where the plant is growing to treat a variety of infections and diseases. And it's tasty.
Pure natural power!
