Exotic Tropical Fruit Of The Week: Lucuma

Lucuma is a very exotic tropical fruit from Peru. This is the tree I cut my first Lucuma in Peru.

The flavor is unique and sweet. This is how it looks inside…yummy!

For some people is so sweet they rather use it in other things, like cakes, pies, pastries, puddings, ice creams, juices, and other things.

Actually, my first time learning about it was in a local Starbucks…in Peru.

This is how Peruvians sell Lucuma fruit in their markets. So tropical and deliciously colorful!
