Between the months of April and May the little green plum known as Can Erik Plum is available in the markets. These little hard green plums have a sour flavour to them and are a delicacy throughout Turkey and the mid-east.
Some enjoy these plums chilled and or covered in salt. You can find them sold on the streets or at your local market. If you are not living in Turkey and would like to try these plum you can order them online. Living in Turkey it’s not unusual for neighbours with their own Can Erik Trees to hand in some of these tasty plums.
