LUCUMA

It is a native fruit of the Peruvian Andean region. It grows at
temperate elevations  between 2,700 meters to 3,000 meters.  According to historians, the use of lucuma pre-dates the Inca Empire.
This delicious fruit is rich in niacin (Vitamin B3), which helps to stimulates the functioning of the nervous system. It is also rich in fiber, iron, zinc, calcium and beta carotene, and an excellent source of carbohydrates, making it a high energy food.
