Lucuma (Loo-Ku-Mah) is a popular South American fruit with a full-bodied maple and butterscotch flavor and a rich, orange/yellow pulp like a cross between sweet potato and avocado. Honored both spiritually and culinarily in Peru since ancient times, it is rarely left out of celebrations and is an extremely versatile and tasty snack and dessert item.

Reintroduced to North America in 1989 by the definitive book "Lost Crops of the Incas," lucuma has become a popular health food with sweet flavor, iron, and slow-acting carbohydrates that provide long-lasting energy without spiking your blood sugar.

  • One of the most popular superfood fruits of South America
  • Sweet, delicious flavor with hints of maple and butterscotch
  • A mild-flavored, sweet addition to desserts, trail mixes, energy bars and granola

Lucky lucuma

Direct from the source—a pristine, certified organic farm just south of Lima, Peru—this lucuma powder is grown on a mixed product farm, which provides soil balance, food source diversity, and naturally reduces insect problems.

Ancient archeological sites dating back thousands of years have revealed carvings and ceramics depicting the central role of lucuma in traditional Peruvian life. It is a hardy, drought-resistant tree yielding nutritious fruit, and is both a valuable export crop and a sustainable staple for the people of Peru.

Fair and fresh

All workers are paid according to fair trade practices, and processing the lucuma in Peru creates jobs and enriches their community beyond simple commodity crop export.

During peak ripeness, fresh lucuma fruits are harvested and transported to an organic and NOP certified processing facility, where the fruit is washed, skinned and the seeds and flesh are separated by hand.

Sweet and simple

The lucuma flesh is sliced and placed in a low-temp drier kept between 104 and 122F.

Once the dried lucuma reaches the optimum moisture level, it is machine-ground to a fine powder and sealed in moisture-proof bags for shipping to our facility.
