Lucuma

lucuma

Lucuma is a fruit from the subtropical region in the Peruvian Andes. It is a fruit with a distinctive taste that was very popular in the area and time of the Incas and the Moches. It is also known as the Inca gold. Lucuma trees can reach the age of 500 and still bear fruit.

Lucuma looks like an avocado in its entire form, with a hard green exterior that covers the sweet, soft fruit. The meat is yellow and has a texture that is somewhat reminiscent of that of a dry egg yolk. Many people say that the taste of lucuma reminds them of a cross between caramel and a sweet potato. Although it contains a soft sweetness, it is low on the glycemic scale and usually suitable for diabetics.

Often lucuma is sold in powder form, perfect for adding to smoothies or baking recipes. The soft taste and the soft aroma enhance most foods without directly affecting or influencing the overall flavor of the recipe. Lucuma is sustainably grown in this region without the use of pesticides and is grown together with other plants to give farmers a greater advantage.
