Pile of lulo fruits
Lulo Fruit Is Colombia's Cross Between Tomato And Lime

The lulo fruit belongs to the same family of nightshades as tomatoes, and it looks like a seedy tomato when sliced into, with a pulp that's juicy and full of tart liquid.

Lulo fruit grows in clusters on small shrubs and is prized all across South and Central America for its sweet, sour, and tangy taste as well as its juicy flesh and

edible seeds.

Lulo fruits are small and have tough leather-like, orange-colored skins. Unfortunately, the fruits are extremely fragile and are rarely shipped across long distances.

Inside the skin is a gelatinous greenish-yellow flesh that is speckled with an abundance of tiny edible seeds, which add a crunch to all the citrus juice that bursts from within.

Lulo has the sour notes of citruses like lime, the tang of fruits like kiwi, the sweet-sour flavors of tropical fruits like pineapple, and the tart complexity of rhubarb.

The flavor of the fruit will vary depending on the climate it's grown in and how it is eaten. It's often paired with sweeteners or cooked to round off its piquant flavor.

Lulo fruits are packed with vitamins A, C, K, and B6. The fruits also contain dietary fiber that can aid digestion, help with gut issues, and reduce bad cholesterol levels.
