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.
