Dear friends,
Attaching the pictures of Guyabano fruit (I think). The fruit is
around 8' long around 4" across. It is slightly sweet and more sour.
The pulp is separate cloves, embeded inside are the seeds.
The tree is around 12' in height and the leaves are slightly like
custard apples only smoother. I shall get the picture of the tree
shortly. It is available in a farm in Wayanad.
Regards.
Yazdy.

According to the information available on the internet, this plant is supposedly more effective (about 1000 times) in curing cancer. There are some reviews as well to verify this.

this is one of the many links. 

Wikipedia states some of the general information.

Thank you Dr. Gurcharan Singh ji.
Let me now try to get some seeds to germinate and have some plants.
Have been looking for some plants since the time I read about the
healing properties of the fruit.
Regards
Yazdy.
