Guanabana is awesome. It came as a special request from a customer in Brazil and even though the name takes some practice, the flavor notes will be almost familiar as they blend some of the most pleasing tropical notes imaginable. This flavor can stand alone, or be used with other tropical cousins like cherimoya, jackfruit or its analog, soursop. Guanabana is synonymous with Soursop like apples to apples, but we have two distinct takes on this amazing flavor, so think of soursop as a red apple, and guanabana as a green apple.

Freshly mixed this flavor is very mild and has very little flavor when mixed to the recommended amounts.
1 week — flavor is still mild but it starting to come out, floral notes are more noticeable at this stage.
2 weeks — Flavor is coming out far more, pineapple notes are far more present now.
3 weeks — A full more rounded flavor has emerged at this stage. The secondary tropical fruit and other fruity notes are now far more in front of the waxy jasmine floral notes.
4 weeks — Flavor is fully steeped at this point, as in the next few weeks no more significant change has been noticed. Floral waxy notes have blended into the background and forms the base flavor notes of this flavor. The mid and top notes of fruit are more apparent and fully ripened.
