A friend of mine told me that I can buy Guyabano in Puregold. But We have to wait a day before we can eat it. The problem is that we are done eating the guyabano that we eat. The next day I visit Puregold to buy another guyabano but its all gone. Its all gone. I was thinking where in Philippines or cities in Philippines that are abundant of guyabano? So that the treatment we like to achieve is continuous. Any idea?

I am learning a lot on this site and maybe I could be learning even more. What is Guyabano and What is Puregold. I suspect Puregold is some sort of retail establishment but I have not a clue about Guyabano except you can eat it. Is it sweet or savory and is it meat or vegetable. How and when do you eat it and do you cook it first

Yeah PureGold is like a supermarket. Guyabano is a fruit which is slightly sour and sweet? It's hard to explain. But it is healthy and good. We have a tree of it in our house in the philippines.

Guyabano is abundant in Visayas and Mindanao. In Mindanao you can see these trees in the backyard. The fruits is rotten because no body eat. If you eat the ripe one, it is delicious. The soup is like a milk, little bit sour but sweet. But most of all it is a medicine of cancer.

Davao is abundant with Guyabano, you can buy as many Guyabano as you want here, you can find it in the wet market and all the supermarket here. I frequently eat Guyabano too because lots of Doctors recommend it for chronic illnesses prevention especially cancer. It is indeed a very healthy and nutritious fruit.

Here in our province, Bicol there are guyabano plants that really bears a lot of fruit. In fact, in my parents' house there is a guyabano tree that bears so much fruit. I would always ask for a ready to be ripened one, and just wait for it to ripen so we could eat it. I think anyone who has a green thumb can plant one and have it bear fruits.

I see a lot of guyabanos in our public market but it's seasonal. Maybe you can look at supermarkets in malls or in big groceries. I think they have those already cut open and wrapped and packed in plastic.

I have read somewhere off the internet that Guyabano is abundant in Mt. Banahaw, in Quezon Province. That will probably be considered the land of the guyabano in the Philippines. It can also be found in Misamis Occidental. You could try using the Guyabano flavored Vitaplus, if you can't find any fruits, the vitaplus is a health drink.

In our place at the bicol region there are guyabanos not a plantation but there are at the houses backyards. There are plenty though at the market coming from different places I guess.

Now I have learned something indeed. This plant you call Guyabano turns out to be one that my grandmother had in her yard except that the name she gave it was PawPaw. We did not know that it was a health-giving substance that could be used for healing. Well, I think the plant is easy to grow but maybe it will be years before it bears fruit.

Oh my parents do like to eat guyabano.I do eat it but not that much,maybe just "tikim tikim lang hehehe".I don't know in what place here in our country is the origin or where it is abundant.In our little backyard I think we do have two Guyabano trees which bear fruits once in a while.I saw some of it in SM Megamall Supermarket.
