Lucuma fruits are found in Peru, where they have been honored since the time of the Incas. Today, South Americans enjoy their fragrant, rich maple-like flavor in a variety of culinary creations.
Lucuma, pronounced “loo-ku-mah,” belongs to the Sapotaceae family. Its fruits look like round green avocados but have firm, orange and yellow pumpkin-like pulp. They are an excellent source of carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and contain especially high concentrations of beta carotene, niacin, and iron.
