plural lucmos

A fruit native to the dry subtropical Andean coastal valleys of Peru, Ecuador, and introduced in Chile. It is very nutritious, having high levels of carotene and vitamin B3. The fruits are round, about the size of a peach, and greenish with tangy orange-tinged flesh, widely used in desserts and, in particular, ice creams. The flesh surrounds four large stones which must be discarded.
