Orders are collected, and when we have sufficient orders, the fresh leaves are then picked, semi dried and posted. This occurs about every 3-4 weeks, BUT the harvesting is dependent on the conditions. The leaves can only be picked when the trees are not flushing and when the weather is dry enough to allow the leaves to be semi-dried. The bark is stripped from the branches which have been pruned for the leaves, and left to dry as ribbons for a few days. These bark ribbons are then coiled up into 30 gm bundles. One bundle of bark is included with 200gms of leaves, and two bundles are included with 400 gms of leaves.
As this is a tropical environment, mould spores may be on the leaves when they are picked. We do our best to reduce the possibility of mould by drying the leaves. Boiling water will kill the bacteria.The leaves are perishable, and should be stored in the freezer when they arrive.
Oldest orders are filled first. We can only up to supply 460 gms at any one mail out. We cannot supply larger orders as our supplies are limited.
We do not have any medical expertise, and are not able to provide any advice on how to use the leaves or bark. We have set up a Facebook Group for Soursop Help so that our customers can share advice on how to use the leaves and bark at https://www.facebook.com/groups/soursophelp/.
