For those of you who may not be familiar with it - lulo is a tropical, citrus-like fruit, native to the northwest region of South America. Its flavor is very distinctive, can be compared with pineapple or even with a mixture of lime and rhubarb. It’s healthy and reminds us about the tropics, which we have been deeply in love for the last 20 years! If you cut it into half its cross-section shows 4 directions- north, south, east and west like on the globe. Someone bitten by the “travel bug”, like us could associate it only with planet…so, you know we practically had no choice ;)
