I purchased a soursop tree and it experienced some transit shock. Got a little too cold. The leaves had brown spots so I removed all of them. When should I start seeing some recovery and what are the signs? Also when can I hope too see new leaves …hoping it survives

Recovery time for a soursop tree experiencing transit shock and cold damage varies, typically taking a few weeks to a couple of months. After removing brown-spotted leaves, signs of recovery include new growth emerging from nodes. Ensure optimal growing conditions, maintain consistent moisture, and protect the tree from cold temperatures. If there's no improvement after a reasonable time, seeking advice from a local horticulturist or agricultural extension service is recommended.
