Grown in Peru

 

Red Maca Powder

  • Maca is an ancient crop species, believed to have been first cultivated some 2,000 years ago in the San Blas area of central Peru. Historically the crop was grown in the Puna grasslands of the Andean mountains on inhospitable terrain unsuitable for other forms of agriculture. Maca today thrives in these hostile environments, only growing at altitudes above 3,500 metres on poor rocky soils where acidity may exceed pH5, and is able to withstand high winds and temperatures as low as -10°C
