Hello


I sumbled upon the Graviola (sour sop?) more or less by accident on facebook.
Here is a link to a page (very short) about it.
http://www.nairaland.com/1058049/cancer-cells-graviola-fruit-leaf

And this is the facebook thing I am talking about.
Now, if this is such a fantastic plant, I want it in my garden!

Getting seeds should be possible, but I don't know if they grow in Belgium.
Anyone experience with it?
If you don't know Belgian climate but you do know the plant: we live at the end of the gulf stream, North Sea.
Our summers and winters are moderate, but peaks to 30-35°C are possible in summer. In winter, we normally stay abouf -10°C, but the thermometer sometimes happen to drop to -20°C (only every few years, but a tree-shrub should be able to survive this)


Tanks a lot!!
Tyrr

I have planted graviola (guanabana) in Costa Rica and it is a great fruit especially for juice. I don't believe it will survive the winters where you are located, as temperatures below freezing will damage it.

It does not like anything under 0C or 32F or zone 10.

Have you considered the Pawpaw? Not the tropical papaya but the relative to graviola that grows in the USA. As a native to the USA, Asimina triloba will grow in temperate climates with no problems. They need some shade while growing.
