Maca was originally grown in the Peruvian mountains. It grows especially in Junin province. Peru's capital, Lima, is 310 kilometers from the central highway and can be reached through the Anticona mountainous region, which is over 4,800 meters above sea level. The road to the car is very spectacular. The way to go is only 30-40 kilometers per hour when you turn around.

The area is very dry and the temperature difference between day and night is severe. There are not many trees growing, only low-tall plants growing and stony lands.

The cultivation begins at 3,000-3,600 meters above sea level through the Andes Mountains. Potatoes and corn are mainly grown in this area. The peasants sell potatoes, corn and maca to the town.

In this region, maca is a stock of the Andes, such as beans, rice, and potatoes.

Maka has been famous in Peru for the past 5-7 years, mostly because it is made from processed food in the Junin region.

From wine such as wine, to beverages and jam, it is consumed throughout Peru.
