Indigo Herbs Organic Lucuma Powder comes from Peru where it is grown in organic orchards. Harvest is generally between January and April where the Lucuma fruit starts to ripen and fall from the trees. Even when the fruits fall they are still very hard and are kept under hay until the peel starts to soften and the bitter white latex inside the fruit breaks down. When the fruit is ripe the inner flesh is a very similar texture to pumpkin and can be quite hard. To make Organic Lucuma Powder the ripe fruit is dehydrated under 45°C in special dehydrators until thoroughly dry. The fruits are then milled into a fine powder and made ready for testing. All batches are then tested for microbial activity and heavy metals to make sure that this powder is some of the very best that can be bought. The Organic Lucuma Powder is then made ready for shipping.

It is difficult to rate this product as it is the first and only time I have used it! So far so good. I am trying to replicate the flavour of the icecream I so enjoyed in Peru.
