Where can I buy soursop (fresh fruit) in the UK? πŸ‰

Just that really. I've just figured out that the unbelievably delicious fruit that I had every day on holiday in St Lucia 17 years ago must be soursop and I really want to have it again!

(Ok, the emojis are watermelon but imagine they are white fleshed with black seeds and taste like heaven)

In brick lane sone of the Bangladeshi grocery stores perhaps. Or Whitechapel.

Where's the big wholesale fruit and veg market, I'm sure they'll have it too.

Not London unfortunately but South East

It looks as though it's London, Birmingham or Bristol for big wholesale fruit and veg markets. All a long way from me.

There's an Asian supermarket about 30 minutes away. Would that be likely to have it or does it need to be specifically Bangladeshi? This one is more Chinese Asian.

Doesn't have to be a Bangladeshi grocer, but that's usually where I've seen them. China town also has them.

Failing the fresh stuff, Rubicon does a juice called guanabana. It's the same fruit but I think it's the name used in Latin America.

If you have any Caribbean restaurants or communities near you I would go in and ask if they know where to get some. Most people are excited to share the more unusual flavours and foods of their cultures, I would think they’d be chuffed you asked.

If you can't find it it looks very similar to cherimoya/custard apple so you could try those. Just googled and riverford and asda both have them on the website but not available. Maybe out of season?

Do you have a Jamaican/Caribbean shop any where near?

Agree with the pp who said custard apple, they are the same fruit.

I don't work for these people and have never used them, but a quick Google threw up this:

//Www.soursopuk.com

Brilliant! Thanks so much for all the ideas. I've worked out that the nearest Caribbean restaurant is about half an hour away. I think I'll try the website and will track the juice down too. I hope it's as good as I remember!

I used to buy them in a local greengrocer. I asked the guy who worked there and he said all his South American customers used to buy them. So try looking in an area where there are lots of them. West London?

cd No, the seeds are much bigger and fewer of them. I tried Dragonfruit soon after thinking it might be similar but was sorely disappointed!

I'm some way out of London so will price up which of those websites are cheaper. They seem to have stock.
