What is lucuma?
Lucuma (pronounced loo-KOO-mah) is a small, yellowish-orange fruit that grows on small evergreen trees found in the mountainous regions of Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Bolivia. Also known as “egg fruit,” lucuma has a dense, firm pulp that resembles the yolk of a hardboiled egg in texture. It’s extraordinarily sweet, with a scent somewhat like maple syrup.
Lucuma is enjoyed in traditional South American dishes and desserts, especially ice cream, with lucuma a more popular flavor than chocolate or vanilla in many countries. The powder can be used as a natural, nutritious sweetener in anything from smoothies or juice to homemade desserts.
