With soursops, even with good pollination, it is normal for many flowers to fall off and only a few to produce fruit, but the fruit production improves as the tree gets older.

Soursop should be the same, but the schedule is: In the early evening, collect pollen from male flowers. Store it in the refrigerator overnight. Apply the pollen to the stigmas of the female flowers early the next morning.
