I am not sure whether soursops can be grown and produce fruit successfully in pots. Their mature size outdoors is 15-30 feet, and it is difficult to get them to fruit successfully even outdoors. In a pot, it may be possible to keep the tree to a small size by continually pruning it back, but the tree would probably be unhealthy and unlikely to produce fruit.

Yes! Soursops can be grown in pots. I have one grown in a 20 litre water bottle and it took just a little over than two years to start flowering and now has its first fruit. It's the size of a medium apple right now and continues growing everyday. Just make sure it is well irrigated and well fertilized (10-10-10). Mine loves to get her leaves wet, I've noticed too.My tree is only 6 feet tall, just so you know.
