Lulo, also known as “Naranjilla,” is grown in Ecuador and Colombia. This refreshing and healthy fruit has a sweet-sour taste and has the potential to become the latest taste trend. Imports’ offers the Lulo as a top-quality pulp and juice for developing innovative drinks, dairy products, as well as confectionery and bakery products.

The Lulo fruit is truly exotic. In Colombia, it is regarded as a “royal fruit” due to its extraordinary taste. The Lulo bush (Solanum Quitrents) grows in tropical altitudes in Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Panama, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. The fruits, which look like orange-colored tomatoes, are difficult to transport in their fresh state as they continue to ripen after picking.

 

This refreshing fruit is a favorite in the South American juice bars. Whether as juice, in refreshing cocktails or in dairy products – the Lulo has great potential to become the newest taste sensation. With its sour-sweet fruit taste, its image as an unusual exotic fruit and the beneficial and nutritional health benefits, there are several options for Lulo: as a refreshment for kids, a smoothie for the health conscious or as a juice or juice blend for young and old alike. Its characteristic aroma also makes it suitable as a top note for drinks.

 

Fruit preparations with Lulo are also ideal for dairy products and can be provided in a form suitable for baking, for fruit bars and other baked products. The aromatic Lulo is also perfect for use in ice cream, jelly products or chocolate pralines.
