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.
did you ever find the lucuma puree?? i've been searching everywhere everywhere and everywhere.. jackson heights etc let me know
