I know this should be a garden question but I’m growing one soursop tree that is 3 year old and one Cherimoya tree that’s also 3 year old and I love the smell when I crush the leaves from the soursop tree and I was just curious if it’s safe to eat or use my vitamix blender to make soursop leave juice ? I just cain’t seem to find an answer to my question. Can anyone help me on my curiosity ?
