How did you manage without Lulo?
Lulo surprises with a pleasant citrus flavour, sometimes described as a combination of rhubarb and lime. While orange and green on the outside, lulo juice is a yellowish green. The mandarin-size fruit is rich in proteins, Vitamin C and potassium.
It is traditionally grown in the mountainous regions of Colombia, Ecuador and Central America, at heights of up to 2,500 meters. In Colombia, lulo is grown by over 6,000 farmers, primarily in the department of Huila, in the South of the country. While exports have been limited, lulo is among the most popular fruits in Colombia. Lulo is the indigenous Quechua name for the fruit, which the Spanish settlers have subsequently called “naranjilla” (“little orange”).
