Annona muricata, or soursop, is an exotic commodity which is currently finding its way into commercial markets as it is becoming better known. The harvested yield contains only a small proportion of total global fruit production. Thus, sustainability and improvement of these species in suitable regions, as well as improved application and potential commercial values, are needed. This chapter discusses various aspects of soursop, including cultivar origin and distribution, taxonomy and botany, harvest season, estimated annual production, fruit physiology and biochemistry, chemical compositions and nutritional values, sensory characteristics, harvest and postharvest conservation, and industrial applications.
