From south America, Lucuma has a sweet yellow flesh with a dry texture and a flavour that's often compared to a blend of sweet potato and butterscotch.
The lucuma tree dates back to the Moche people, an indigenous Andean civilization in the 1500's who cultivated lucuma, along with corn, quinoa, and beans. Lucuma was a key source of nutrients in times of drought and famine and was honored in festivals, used medicinally, and shown artistically as a sacred food.
