Turkish greengrocer renames religious plums
According to Kayseri resident and greengrocer Caner Topuz, the name ‘Priest Plum’ made people uncomfortable so it was changed to the ‘Imam Plum’. They have been sold under the name of ‘Imam plums’ for almost two years. Topaz said:
“At the request of our customers, and because it made us uncomfortable, we changed the name from ‘Priest’ to ‘Imam’. It attracted the attention of citizens. We’ve had positive responses. Rumour has it that the plum, grown in central Anatolia, wasn’t actually called ‘Papaz’ (priest) but ‘Tapaz’, but this changed over time and people started saying ‘Papaz’. So we changed the name, to Imam.
Greengrocer Topuz, said that customers like the taste of the Imam plum, “The Imam plum is sweeter, tastier” he joked. The ‘Imam Plum’ sells for €1.60 a kilo.
