do you get guyabano there? even in chinatown? even frozen ones? when magnolia used to have fruit juices in tetra paks (remember those?), i always bought the guyabano flavor. it has a very unique taste that is refreshing, and i like the sweet-sour balance a lot. we used to have a guyabano tree in our yard so i developed a taste for this fruit early on. the buds and the leaves also had a citrusy scent that was more pronounced at nighttime.
mom found really sweet ones from the market yesterday. they were succulently sweet and sourish. it’s so easy to understand why this fruit is called soursop. 🙂 and they’re said to be full of antioxidants, so they’re always tops when in comes to healthy food for cancer prevention and cure. so i guess in tropical countries, a guyabano each day keeps the doctor away. 😛
