Legend Says

Our scouts have heard various origin stories for lucuma. In one story extraterrestrials brought lucuma to Peru over 3,500 years ago to help populate South America. In another a goddess of the Andean highlands got pregnant by eating this fruit. Lucuma is considered the tree of life and fertility, but it was also used in making dressing to cover wounds. It is rich in minerals like iron that help carry oxygen in the blood, useful in the highlands. Its soft understated sweetness, about half as sweet as sugar, makes for a wholesome alternative to sweeteners. With a hint of butterscotch and maple, Lucuma is best not described. It is best tasted.

Description

Explorer’s Recommendation

Lucuma is great for making ice cream and frozen yogurts. It works exquisitely well as a topping on sorbet, frappe, ice cream and frozen yogurt. You can make all the classics as well like meringues, cobblers and pies with an exotic twist. Sprinkle on muffins and baked goods substituting powdered sugar as a final touch. Add a soft subdued exotic flavor to cocktails. But if you’re feeling brave, adventurous and are ready for real excitement, add it to your latte. Extra points if you go for a lucuma cappuccino and win a barista TV show.
