JUNA juice – guanábana, lulo and mora

Juice flavours are all pretty standard now, so I was hyped to hear about some funky fresh new flavours – guanábana, lulo and mora – from Euro-Colombian startup JUNA. Available to buy at Waitrose (flagship store at Canada Square), Selfridges and John Lewis.

Guanábana –  [not to be confused with guarana] Known as soursop in English, guanábana is a large tropical fruit, dark green in colour and with a spiny/pineapple-like texture. Here’s how Wikipedia describes its flavour:

The flavour has been described as a combination of strawberry and pineapple, with sour citrus flavour notes contrasting with an underlying creamy flavour reminiscent of coconut or banana.

Complex.

Lulo – One of the most popular fruits in Colombia, lulo has a citrus flavour and looks like a small orange. Its flesh has been described as having a ‘pineapple and lemon’ taste or ‘rhubarb and lime’. Confusing… only one way to find.

Mora – “the Andean blackberry” (which looks like a large raspberry) has an intense, slightly bitter taste. Meant to be very good for you.

Here’s what JUNA says about itself on its website:

“At JUNA we are enthusiastic about building a successful business whose products and activities set new trends and capture consumers’ passions. We also feel that through our business we should help make the world a fairer, more exciting, healthy and open-minded place.”

What’s not to like?!

  1. Abel Burke says:

    The fruit is similar in shape and appearance to a large, oval-shaped raspberry with a deep red colour. Nearly 15,000 farmers grow mora on small parcels of land across Colombia in altitudes of up to 3,000 meters, often in highly remote areas of the country. The berry is rich in calcium, phosphorus and Vitamin C and has potent antioxidant properties.
