Guanabana fruit ( Sour Sop ) harvest season in trouble!

At the MACAL RIVER market today Saturday, in the Western Twin Towns, the stall vendors were saying that GUANABANA fruit is destroyed locally for this season. Some kind of flying insect, very small type of ant, has destroyed the crop on the trees.

I love the juice or blended stuff, when you stick it in a blender. Really great flavor and refreshing drink.

And the sour sop is touted as a healing tree. The fruit, bark, stems and leaves are said to have healing properties and cancer fighting properties. I can vouch for the leaves being the greatest natural sleep aid. Three young leaves steeped in boiling water as a tea enables sound, blissful sleep.
