Sipping On A Sop

Updated on August 28, 2016
Sweet Sop or Sugar Apple
Sweet Sop or Sugar Apple

What can i say, i am a sweet sop addict
Wherever i see a sweet sop i just have to have it
Luckily i have my own sugar apple tree
There underneath i sit to enjoy these sops, sometimes two sometimes three
I look up in the trees and i see crows enjoying the fruits
Eating the very large ones at the top of the tree, those brutes
The sweet-sop s packed with many health benefits which is good for me
Follow me in this poem and you will see.

If you are concerned about your health, just listen me
Sweet-sop is the key
sweet-sop has free radical scavenging activity, so a very effective antioxidant.
What more could you ask for, i'll go on and list this fruits importance
If you have a friend, buddy or a good mate
Don't be afraid to share this fruit, it is rich in fiber and carbohydrates
One three inches small fruit provides about 7 grams of fiber
So ditch the pills for something sweeter

This same small fruit contains roughly 56 milligrams of vitamin C
So give your bones and muscle that extra boost of power and energy
But if you want the best tasting sugar apple you will have to come visit me, i don't live that far away
So we can sit and write poetry and have Sweet sops all day

Inside a Sweet Sop a.k.a Sugar Apple
Inside a Sweet Sop a.k.a Sugar Apple

      I love em. I like to get them as a shake. I pick some up every time I see them. But truly the best ones are picked from my mother in laws trees. Auntie has a bunch too. Now you got me craving.

      @peachpurple, that pic is a sweetsop and not a sour sop. That is from my own sweetsop tree. Soursop is green and has many pointy things on it. Soursop also is very healthy and makes a refeshing drink. Just squeeze the fruit, strain, add lime juice and cane dark sugar and viola!

      I love sour sop, the one that you had posted the picture, it is sweet but don't know why we call it sour sop.

      I usually eat them when it is seasonal but now, hardly find any.

      I have never eaten a sweet sop, but I would love to. Your poem is creative, plus full of info. about the healthy aspects of the fruit. I don't think it's grown here, but I'm not sure.
