Scientific name: Annona Muricata Linnaeus

also known as: Guanabana or Soursop

Heart shaped/oblong fruit with dark green and spike-like skin. Contains 60 to 100 black seeds that are non edible.

Guyabano tree is sensitive to very cold temparatures. Needs plenty of water. Usually grown in the tropics.

Low in cholesterol, saturated fats, potassium and dietary fiber.

Guyabano is considered to be antispasmodic, sudorific and emetic.

Boiling in water of guyabano leaves is used to kill bedbugs and head lies.

It is also used to reduce fever when taken internally.

According to email , a poultice of young guyabano leaves is applied on the skin can cure rheumatism and other skin infections.
