LUCUMA - WHITMAN
Green fruit with bright yellow flesh. It is sweet and similar to a canistel but with an odd aftertaste. The fruits are round or oval and very popular in South America when they are dried and powdered, eaten fresh out of hand and used in drinks and desserts.

Customer Comments on Lucuma - Whitman
Tasted in Peru. Like maple syrup with boiled egg consistency. Really nice fruit. Only strange first time. Then addictive! | Suzy - Adelaide, SA 18-Feb-2017
