Description

Raw Organic Lucuma Powder 500g
The lucuma is a subtropical fruit from the dry subtropical Andean coastal valleys of Peru; introduced later in Ecuador and Chile. It grows at elevations between 1000-2400 metres. Cajamarca, Ancash, Lima, and Ayacucho are the major areas in Peru grow lucuma trees. Lucuma has been found on ceramics at burial sites of the indigenous people of coastal Peru. The Moche people had a fascination with agriculture and often chose to represent fruits and vegetables, including lucuma, in their art.
The fruit is very nutritious, having high levels of carotene, vitamin B3, carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals (such as iron etc). In some countries it is one of the most popular ice-cream flavors. Lucuma is a popular flavoring for ice cream in its native range, and in Peru even exceeds the demand for more globally popular flavors such as strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla.
