Plants from seedlings mature in 3–4 years. Grafted plants mature much earlier, as early as 18 months. Pest attacks are rare for soursop tree.

Health benefits of Soursop/Mullaatha

Eating soursop can be helpful for digestive problems. Some believe that the fruit and leaves of soursop have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. It's a good source of vitamin C and minerals such as potassium and calcium. However, the therapeutic effects of Soursop (Mullatha) aren't fully established.

Soursop cancer treatment

Therapeutic use of the fruit has gained traction in recent years after some studies showed that certain compounds found in the fruit, annonaceous acetogenins and alkaloids, can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. However, these findings need to be further corroborated by more specialized studies and empirical evidence.

P.S. Anyone using Soursop/Mullatha juice, Soursop leaves, tea, or any other Soursop recipes for their anti-cancer properties is warned to follow proper medical advice and not discontinue their treatment prescribed by a qualified medical practitioner for a treatment using Soursop.
