Peruvian lucuma fruit is a subtropical fruit that’s extremely popular in Peru where it’s also known as “Inca’s Gold”. Lucuma powder is rich in vitamins B1 and B2, and contains a variety of other valuable nutrients, including fibre, vitamins B3 and B5, beta-carotene, iron, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus.
Lúcuma is a nutrient dense fruit from Peru. We are the UK’s first certified organic importers of lúcuma. Lúcuma’s posh title is “lúcuma obovata or pouteria obovata.” The tree is long lived, evergreen, and belongs to the Sapotaceae family — so it’s similar to the canistel and sapote. It smells divine, and tastes like maple syrup flavoured ice-cream! In Peru, the yellowy-orange fruit pulp is added to ice-cream and is Peru’s favourite flavour.
