Persian Plum ‘Tabriz’ Tree – Goje Sabz

In Iran, the arrival of Spring is celebrated extensively as the Persian new year coincides with the Spring Equinox.  As spring progresses, gradually blossoms turn into fruit. One of the highlights of spring fruit is the arrival of Persian plums from Tabriz.  This variety of plums is picked when they are still green.  They are indeed extremely popular amongst Iranian children and adults alike. The perfect Persian plum is green, crunchy when bitten into, yet juicy with a very pleasant tart flavor.  It’s pretty much impossible to not get hooked after the first one.

This variety of plum is well known in the Middle East. The tree itself is relatively small and thrives in locations with cooler winter temperatures while the tree is dormant. The fruit at the time of harvest is green, round and small.  If not harvested during its green stage, the plums eventually turn into a deep golden color. At this point, these small plums turn soft, juicy, and sweet. The variety of Persian plum trees sold at Paradise Nursery is from the northern Iranian city of Tabriz.

Uses and In Cuisine

The Persian plum from Tabriz is delicious when eaten raw with a sprinkle of salt.  Additionally, Persian plums are also used in Persian cuisine to enhance some dishes’ flavor with their pleasant tart taste. A popular dish that tastes best when cooked with Sour Plums is Koofteh Tabrizi, a large round stuffed meat loaf simmered in beef broth with a handful of green plums added to it. Additionally, cooking the Green Plums with cubes of lamb, parsley, and mint makes for a delicious Khoresh, Persian stew, which is then served over Persian rice.

Well known in Middle Eastern cultures, the Persian plum is a very popular Iranian fruit tree that can be picked while green. The taste is tart and it is well paired when eaten raw with a sprinkle of salt. The fruit is small and round with a crunchy texture and juicy delicious flavor. The fruit can be left on the tree to fully ripen into small, soft, sweet and juicy deep golden color plums. Iranian green plums are relatively small winter deciduous trees and thrive in areas with cooler winter temperatures during winter dormancy months. The variety of Sour Plumtree sold at Paradise Nursery is from the city of Tabriz.
