If you want to buy soursop fruit, it can sometimes be tough to find in North America. It is not always available in your local store or supermarket. Here is why:
Why fresh soursop is hard to find
Fresh soursop fruit is grown primarily in tropical areas of the world. That includes northern and central South America and the Caribbean islands. It is also farmed in the United States, in southern parts of Florida, California, Nevada and New Mexico, where the weather is warm enough for the soursop tree to flourish.
It was exported in the 1500s to Africa and the graviola tree has made its way to Southeast Asian countries as well. Vietnam is well known for its soursop, and it can be found in local fruit markets.

How much does soursop fruit cost?
Because soursop is a tropical fruit that ripens over a few days and then goes bad, getting the famous fruit to your door can be costly in smaller quantities. We ship it you in the U.S. for about $17.35 per pound (shipping by 2 day air is included) if you buy 20 lbs. Smaller orders drive the price over $20 per pound.
However you can remove the fruit pulp from the skin and freeze it, so we recommend you buy fresh fruit in volume and freeze it or share the cost with friends.
You can buy vacuum sealed jars of soursop pulp from Amazon for around $18/lb shipping included (using Amazon Prime). However it is not fresh from the tree.
