LUCUMA

Lucuma is native to the dry sub-tropical Andean coastal valleys. It is one of the Lost Crops of the Incas, who honoured this fruit both culinarily and spiritually. Lucuma is highly nutritious and has an addictive, absolutely delightful aroma. It is the most popular ice-cream flavour in indigenous countries.

Nutrition; Lucuma is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including remarkable concentrations of beta-carotene, niacin and iron.

Usage; Lucuma has a wonderful, versatile flavour and can be added to ice-creams, chocolate, smoothies, baby food, cakes and all kinds of desserts. To make lucuma puree soak the powder in the same quantity of water for 2-3 hours.
