    Origin of Lucuma

    Lucuma (Pouteria lucuma or obata) is a native fruit of the Andean valleys of Peru, Ecuador and northern Chile. Chroniclers and historian’s report of its abundance in Peru, having found images and molded ceramics of the Mochica culture these testimonies corroborate an ancient use as part of the diet of the people who settled in towns along the coast and highlands of the country. The oldest of them dating from the eighth millennium. C. in the region called Callejon de Huaylas in Ancash.

    The Moche culture represents lucumo as part of its fascination with agricultural products. Its wood was used to build the sanctuary of Pachacamac where a truncated singular dimensions was carved as a totem figure and was found in 1938. Archaeological investigations locate their domestication in the valleys of the pre-Inca cultures, where the consumption of fruit and use of timber are widely documented in pictorial representations of Amerindian natives.

    The zones that have increased production of lucuma in Peru are; Lima, Ayacucho, La Libertad, Cajamarca and Huancavelica.

    The fruit is a globular berry, slightly flattened or somewhat elongated and its green or yellow and measures between 7 and 14 cm in diameter.

    The quality of our products reflect  the complete organic process; beginning with our growers in the highlands of Peru’s Valleys.
