    Since its a latin american fruit, your best bet in the Houston area is Mi Tienda.

    http://www.houstonpress.com/bestof/2012/award/best...

    They've got a better selection of latin american fruits/vegetables than anyone else in Houston.

    I am posting this because I do not have an

    actual seller website for you.It

    has been difficult to find imported soursop fruit:

    From http://www.civil.soton.ac.uk/icuc/cd_icuc_ber_tama...

    "Small sweet soursop fruits are recommended for the fresh market,

    while large acid ones suitable for the processing industry (Pinto and

    Silva, 1996). However, fruits are soft and when ripe are perishable

    with rapid fermentation. Handling and processing have to be adapted to

    this. For instance, it is unlikely fresh soursop fruits could be

    produced for export."

    From http://www.my-indonesia.info/treadhealt.html

    "Soursop fruit is now cultivated in large quantities for the supply of

    fruit juice manufacturing."

    However, I found a place you may purchase seeds to grow your own in a

    climate-controlled atmosphere - you would need a tropical climate

    greenhouse for the soursop:

    From http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/order.htm

    "Soursop - Very large fruit, up to 1 foot long with a pleasant

    aromatic flavor. The soursop is very popular as a flavoring for ice

    creams and drinks. Small tree, requires tropical conditions. #127

    $1.75"

    More info from a link included "Generally a small-medium tree to

    8m/25ft. Will not survive outside anywhere in the continental US

    except in Southern Florida, where it is grown commercially only to a

    limited extent. Soursop trees require much warmth and humidity, lots

    of water, and will be killed by temperatures below 32ûF/0ûC. In the

    tropics, soursops are grown from sea level to 1000m, particularly in

    humid regions where the tree grows particularly well. Soursop's cannot

    tolerate standing water, and its roots are shallow, so it does not

    require a very deep soil base."

    A lengthy paper on soursop and Florida is located at

    http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/soursop....

    I also searched for rare fruit growers and found this link:

    http://www.crfg.org/nurlist.html At the bottom f the page is a guide

    to who has what and the listing numbers for Soursop were 1, 2, 7, 9,

    11, 17, 19, 21 and 27. You might contact those members to see if they

    grow the fruit for sale. In Florida, the Brevard Rare Fruit Council

    site is located at http://www.brevardrarefruit.org/ - you might also

    contact them to see if they have members who grow and will sell the

    fruit. Their email is president@brevardrarefruit.org and their snail

    mail is The Brevard Rare Fruit Council, P.O. Box 033773, Indialantic,

    FL 32903.

    Good luck in your quest. This sounds like a very interesting fruit

    and it's been interesting to research your question.

    Try your local Fiesta supermarkets.

    Fiesta stores carry a lot of tropical and exotic produce (and they have several stores in Houston).

    Did you find a place in the Houston Metro area that sell Soursop (Guanabana)?

    Any luck? All I could find was the juice at Fiesta. Would also love to buy a tree locally in Houston too so I can grow my own eventually.
