There is actually a decent amount of soursop here on this tropical island, a lot more than pineapple. It isn't that this island doesn't have much pineapple it just has a long time from sprout to yielding fruit. Soursop, in my opinion, tastes pretty good I would almost say better than a pineapple even though the tastes aren't very similar it has a sort of sour apple candy taste to it while the texture is kind of spongey yet juicy like a watermelon and apple cotton candy if that makes sense. All in all, I like it better than pineapple since there are no complications when eating it.

People don't know what they're missing

Soursop is super popular and wanted here in my country, and those who don't appreciate, is just because they don't know the multiple ways to eat it. This is considered a sweet fruit here, so you can find dozens of dessert recipes that contain its pulp, cold cakes, baked ones, frozen smoothies, shakes, ice creams, you guys would be amazed by it. Also, the leaves of the plant are considered the latest treatment for cancer, people makes tea from its leaves, and drink it as common water daily.

Love the taste!

Soursop is known as a cancer-fighting fruit. It is cultivated in my country so we have lots of it especially during the summer. Nothing beats the taste of eating the real fruit of it. It can be eaten as a dessert or as fruit shakes which I love the most because it tastes good when combined with milk and sugar.

Between Soursop and Pineapple, even though I love drinking pure pineapple juice and eating it as a fruit, my vote is on Soursop because it gives the most benefits to our body. It's anti cancer, anti parasitic, it contains a good dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. More than what Pineapples have.

soursop has always been one of my favorite fruit, it is rare in our country but they say it is really a nutritious fruit.

Pineapple, a tropical fruit of the Bromeliaceae family with a crown contains vitamin B1, B2 and C, calcium, folate, manganese, pantothenic acid, bromelain and fibre. It takes three years to grow to full maturity and is best collected and eaten when ripe. They have juice which can be sour to the mouth due to its ascorbic acid content. Pineapples are usually difficult to slice due to the thickness of their shell and people prefer it already sliced. The sliced fruit can be eaten or squeezed to get the juice.

Generally, increased consumption of pineapple decreases the risk of diabetes, death rate and weight gain. Pineapples are good source of nutrients which boost the immune system and mob up free radicals. Taking the juice can help prevent dehydration, build healthy bones and help in fertility.

The fibre content helps prevent constipation by increasing the gastrointestinal motility. They have antiinflammatory properties due to their bromelain content. Pineapple flavour is usually very inviting and can be used in baking, yoghurt, beers and ice cream. Due to the fact that pineapples contains protein digesting enzymes, they tend to digest the proteins in the mouth causing sores which are usually discomforting.

Preparation of pineapple juice might be demanding, but the reward is always worthwhile. You can add other fruits to the juice, to increase it's nutritional benefits, several companies produce pineapple juice, but taking the juice fresh is a preferable option.

• Rich in vitamin C a incredible antioxidant. • Ensures excellent vision. • Helps in preventing inflammatory disorders. • Good for maintaining strong bones and teeth. • Has a positive effect on our immune system.

• Excessive consumption can cause rashes on the skin. • Too much intake can result in excessive menstrual bleeding.



Pineapple please!

I don't think I've ever had Soursop! I've had Lychee's but they kind of taste like strawberries so can't really be compared? I LOVE pineapple though! Especially pineapple juice OMG! Sometimes I think I have more taste buds than most people do. Or maybe I just appreciate nice tasting foods and drinks than most do. I'm thankful to God for most things though. Even a simple apple. Since there are some people in the world that an apple would be a luxury thing. But I love pineapples, especially on pizzas! Nom nom nom!

I love pineapples and pineapple juice. I often buy pineapples. I love their sweet taste. They are so good. I have never had soursop so I can't really say what I think of it but I know if I am give a choice between pineapple and any other fruit that I will always choose pineapple. I like that pineapples do not have seed and from what I read sousop has lots of seeds so that would be a huge turn off for me.
Posted by Sue on 11-08-2017


Pineapple is more common here. I've never actually heard of or seen a soursop.

I'm not really a fan of fruits, but I can eat pineapples. It's one of the few fruits I actually eat and enjoy. I don't think I'd enjoy soursop. It reminds me a lot of durian and that's a big no-no for me. Even without the smell, I can't handle it because of the texture. If soursop is anything like that, then I won't like it.

I prefer Pineapple

I love pineapple and I think that besides the fruit and the juice, it is also possible to make numerous recipes with this fruit. It's a shame that here in my country is usually a bit expensive. But whenever possible I buy pineapple.

Pineapple Wins!

If it weren't for the fact that I visited The Bahamas with my husband, I probably would not know that there was such a fruit as soursop. But almost everybody knows about the pineapple. Pineapples, fresh, canned or juices, can be bought in almost every grocery store in the USA. I can't say the same for soursop. Even it was available, I would still prefer pineapple.

Pineapple - delicious, inexpensive and no seeds.

Having never particularly liked soursop - partly because of the seeds - but mainly because of its strong pungent odor - which is not just unpleasant but far from appetizing - this is an easy choice for me - as I’ve always much preferred the tangy yet sweet flavor of pineapples.

As apart from smelling and tasting absolutely delicious - not only are pineapples refreshingly good at any time of the year whether eaten in chunks or juiced - but - unlike the other option - are always in abundance, are easier to eat and way, way, cheaper too - especially when compared to soursop - which are extremely expensive where I live - at over $25 a kilo!

I would have to go with the pineapple here. I think that it is a much more versatile fruit in terms of its uses. I also think that it is easier to find and easier to process than the soursop. That's true of where i live anyway, at least. I do not like the way the soursop smells as well. Pineapples can go into cakes, salads, on pizza, be made into smoothies--you name it. I think they are a much better value if all we ever do is just look at their different incarnations in our cuisine.
Posted by JoeMilford on 11-03-2017


I like soursop, but it's a very seasonal fruit (and depends a lot on the locality). Pineapple, besides being easier to be found at any time of the year, is more delicious because it can be used in many - and creative - ways.
Posted by wiseagent on 11-08-2017


Pineapple is just great, the taste is amazing and the juice is delicious. It also helps with a lot of things and I make sure to always have one in my house. I've never heard of the other fruit and I don't even know how they call it in my country, so I'll vote for pineapple.

Pineapple Pen!

I do love pineapple, especially in drinks. It's one of my favorite fruits and it gives me enough fiber to cleanse my body and for proper digestion. Pineapple is also healthy so I do recommend to eat or drink pineapple every single day.
Posted by ColdFlameChris on 11-01-2017


Pineapple is everywhere in my area. Supermarkets, fruit stands, restaurants, cafes, etc. It's widely available in many different forms also. Canned, fresh whole, juice form, soda form, fruit cocktails too. Soursop is something I've never heard of before until today. Perhaps, I've passed by it before at the store or something? But I honestly wouldn't know it if and when I saw it.
Posted by NickJ on 11-06-2017

I love it!

I love pineapple - it's definitely one of my favorite fruits and always makes me think of tropical vacations. I've never heard of or tried soursop before, I think it's just not a native fruit here. Because of that pineapple wins my vote!
Posted by amelia88 on 11-13-2018


I choose pineapple. it is sweeter. I love the taste.
Posted by menchuuy58 on 11-22-2018


I prefer pineapple more than soursops though I eat the two but I take more of pineapple. pineapple help me keep hunger at bay because of the fiber content and the water content helps quench thirst and keeps me hydrated.

Pineapple contain so many nutrients that can help the body functions properly like fighting diseases and boosting our immune system.

Yeah, all fruit does! Well, they all have their own anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial cancer fighting properties in them. That's why God gave us them to eat! Not only do they taste delicious, juicy and fruity. But they have a lot of benefits to eat as well. Unfortunately, most people don't eat enough fruit. Some don't eat any at all. The world needs to eat more fruit! :D
Posted by idealmikey on 11-03-2017
I have to vote for both of these fruits. I love them, I like to eat them or drink them as juice. They are sweet, delicious and refreshing fruits. I have, at home, a few soursop trees, I have to be careful when a soursop is already done to eat because the birds like it too so, they have eaten some of my soursops because I've forgotten to collect the soursops.
Posted by cubo on 11-02-2017
I once tasted soursop and totally regretted it. I don't like the smell of soursop too. As for pineapples they have always been my favorite fruit to have is summer. I add them in fruit salads most of the times. I also prepare pineapple juices every now and then. Just last week I went to a coffee shop and bought a pineapple cheesecake. It was really delicious. Moreover, pineapple is also loaded with vitamins and minerals which will help to keep us healthy.
Posted by Pixie on 11-02-2017
I don't think I have ever tried Soursop. Actually, I have not heard about this fruit. Pineapple is not my favorite fruit, however, I do enjoy eating pineapple once in a while. I love pineapple juice more than pineapple fruit. I have planted pineapples in my garden and my plants are yet to bear fruits. Pineapple is not recommended for pregnant women.
Posted by vinaya on 11-05-2017
Do you know that some doctors have declared that soursop has healing properties against many diseases? Just eat the fruit and you can fortify your immunity against cancer. But for me, I prefer the pineapple particularly the sweet variety. Pineapple is always part of my diet when I am trying to lose weight. Sometimes my lunch is a piece of pineapple only. With soursop, it’s fine to eat once in a blue moon.
Posted by Corzhens on 11-11-2017
I eat both but I prefer pineapple over soursop. The soursop fruit has been hyped as an anti-cancer food in recent years and is grown abundantly in our country. Because of the hype, it has become more expensive than other tropical fruits. I find it too sour, though, while pineapples can be sweet and easy on the tongue.

This is a food rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, B vitamins and minerals such as calcium, manganese, potassium and iron. The fibers are not left out of the list, which are important for a healthy life. Pineapple still has a powerful enzyme called bromelain.

The soursop (Annona muricata) is a tropical fruit native to Central America, especially the Caribbean islands, Brazil is very common in the northern region of the country, it prefers warm, humid climates, hence the fact that it is also known as Para Jaca or Poor man.

Indigenous peoples and the ancient peoples of Central America widely use graviola for medicinal purposes. Its use goes beyond the fruit, which is nutritionally very rich (see table below), they usually also use seeds, roots and leaves for the production of tea.

pineapple is really good, but soursop is one of my favorite fruit and it is also rich in nutrients.
Posted by nrnlss on 11-21-2018
I eat soursop and I know that this fruit has a lot of health benefits. However, between the soursop and pineapple, I prefer to eat pineapple. It is one of my favorite fruits and I also the pineapple juice. I just love the sweet taste of pineapple.

I choose pineapple than sour sop. I like the pine apple juice. I like Hawaiian pizza that has pineapple slices on it.
