When mature fruit falls from the lucuma tree it is not ripe, and the pulp too hard to eat. The fruit must be stored under hay to break down the bitter, white latex and softens. However even when fully ripe the flesh remains relatively firm. Ripe fruit is then thoroughly washed and cut into small segments, which are fully dehydrated at 45 degree C. Its then carefully milled into a fine powder, which can be stored for two years, retaining its nutty, caramel flavour.
