The lucuma (Vietnamese: lêkima) is originated from the Andean valleys in South America but the lucuma tree has been cultivated in Vietnam very long time ago, probably during the French colonization period.

In Vietnam, the lucuma tree used to be planted in a home garden, rather than in commercial orchards because it is less appetizing to the Vietnamese than other tropical fruits. Often, ripe fruits fall to the ground and people don’t even bother to gather to consume. But in recent years, the lucuma gets a little more attention as people are seeking more diversified fruit choices.

For this lucuma smoothie, it’s essential that the fruit must be fully ripe, or its taste could be too acrid.
