Soursop Trees

Soursop Doesn’t Become Tender

choontheng added on August 2, 2016 | Answered

The soursop in my plantation (in Johor, Malaysia) has a good supply (quantity) of fruit but I never get a good fruit (quality). It is always almost crunchy even when it is bruised due to insects attacking it. How can I get a good harvest? Will fertilizing it work? Will wrapping it with brown paper bags work?
