I was wondering if anyone has experience growing Soursop/Guanabana in a container?  If one knows of a dwarf variety and any experience caring for this wonderful tree?  I live in north Florida (zone 8b/9a), just a bit to much out of it's range!  Any help would be appreciated!

Pawpaw is in the same family and I am growing it outside in Boston.

Also here is a huge cultivar/species list and vendor. They have specs for temp, height, water, etc.
Let me know if you find anything that is interesting.

Thanks S Bengi.  I recently purchased some Pawpaw seedlings from http://www.justfruitsandexotics.com/JFE/. ; They are a couple hours away from me in the panhandle.  Admittedly, I've never tried a Pawpaw.  I've read about them though and some varieties show promise for Florida!  I recently completed a PDC in Costa Rica and tried Guanabana while in Central America.  Loved it!  I appreciate the tips, the web-site and your quick response!  Thanks, brother!
