Where can I find lucuma?
I tried lucuma at the Fancy Food Fest last summer and loved it and was wondering where I might be able to find fresh lucuma or lucuma puree?
check the local Peruvian & Latin grocers - you may find frozen pulp there. you can also contact these guys to see if you can get it from them in consumer-friendly amounts as opposed ot commerical/bulk packages:
and there are numerous online sources for various lucuma products, though most are powder or freeze-dried:
Amazon.com also has the Navitas brand powder.
Try the freezer case at Rio Bonito, 32-86 47th St., Astoria. I'm reasonably sure I've seen it at other Brazilian markets in Astoria, too.
