LUCUMA (Lucuma Obovata)
An attractive small tree with dark green leaves reaching a height of 3-4 metres in 10 years. The green skinned fruits grow to the size of an orange. The bright yellow flesh is firm and pleasantly cinnamon flavoured. Most often the pulp is made into a dessert, mashed with cream and honey and lemon juice. It can be dried and milled into a nutritious flour that stores well. The trees are extremely productive.
