Q.Soursop Fruits Stopped Growing Bigger

Zone Malaysia. Tropic | Jesson Tan added on November 15, 2020 | Answered

I have a soursop tree that is about 6+ years old. I did hand pollinating on those flowers that I can reach. Its been producing fruits nicely. Those batches that I did hand pollinating sometime in June onwards are bearing fruits and a lot of them too. But recently I notice that some of the fruits seems to stop growing bigger (its about 4″/10cm in length) while other fruits (from the same tree) are growing normally. Some fruits that appears later seems to start over taking it in size. May I know what could be the problem and is there anything I can do about it? Refer to photo.. ‘A’ – growing normally ‘B’ – fruited much later than ‘C’ but is catching up on its size. ‘C’ – seems to stop growing in size. Thank you for you time. .

This can be normal for the first fruits to be less than ideal. Later flushes will usually be of better quality and size.

To be sure, you should test your soil for pH swings or deficiencies. These articles will help:
