Why is there no fresh guanabana in the US?

Steve | May 5, 2009 10:33 AM

Guanabana (aka Soursop) is a tropical fruit that seems to be unavailable in the US, except for frozen pulp and the like. Does anyone know why? It's amazingly popular, and you can find the juice in cans just about everywhere here. But no fresh fruit.... you'd think somebody would try to grow some in Dade County, Florida to sell at Farmer's markets at least, but I can't find a thing.
