What is it?

After encountering it for the first time in the 1500’s, Europeans have referred to lucuma as “eggfruit.” That is because the exotic fruit—which has an outward appearance between a nashi pear and a mango—has a flesh the color and texture of which are similar to a hard-boiled egg.

But it was not the Europeans who discovered lucuma. Rather, it has been cultivated by ancient Peruvians since 200 AD. They this subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree it in the highlands somewhere between 4,500 to 10,000 feet in altitude which makes it almost inaccessible to other people.

Ancient Peruvians call lucuma “Gold of the Incas” using it not just as a staple food but also as a religious offering associated with fertility, longevity and creation. They so love this golden fruit, from before until today, that they named 26 villages after it. Contemporary celebrations still include this precious fruit.
