Lucuma, the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree, is native to the Andean valleys of South America. Lucuma fruit is known in Peru as the “Gold of the Incas” and has been cherished for centuries, both as a staple food source and a religious offering associated with fertility.
- Lucuma is traditionally added to desserts (especially ice cream!) because of its unique and delicious flavor, often described as being similar to sweet potato, maple syrup, or butterscotch, with hints of vanilla.
- Lucuma fruit is low on the glycemic index, making it a great natural sweetener.
