This tree is low and is called Graviola in Brazil, Guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “Soursop” in English. The soursop, a fruit of the flowering, evergreen Graviola tree (Scientific name: Annona muricata) is native to Mexico, Cuba, Central American, the Caribbean and northern South America. The fruit itself is very large and has a subacid sweetish pulp that can be eaten as whole or can be concentrated down to a fruit juice (the main way this fruit is consumed.) The Soursop leaf and bark have been shown to regulate blood sugar and cure diabetes. This has led to discoveries of the fruit’s effectiveness of disorders of the endocrine system: liver, kidney, thyroid, pancreas, ovary, prostate, intestines, gall bladder and appendix. It has also been shown to fight lung & breast cancer as well as brain tumors. Read more interesting facts at http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/soursop-the-cancer-killer-we-never-knew-about/.
