Lucuma, also known as the ‘Gold of the Incas’, is the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria tree which is native of the Andean valley in Peru. This superfruit is consumed by the local population since 200 BC and is considered a symbol of fertility and longevity. Because of its sweet taste it is a common ingredient in dessert and ice cream recipes, as a glorious and very nutritious substitute for sugar.
