Seasonal allergies, putting away your boots, and rolling up the carpet are some clues that spring is around the corner. But there’s one way you’ll really know it’s almost springtime in Lebanon: your favorite spring fruits are showing up!
If your parents complain that you don’t eat enough fruits, just tell them to find you some of these delicious and nutritious snacks. They’ll be more than willing!
Then again, as a Lebanese expat told The961 recently, “the fruits in Lebanon taste differently. They taste nature at its best. They’re succulent. And that’s what I miss the most about Lebanon.”
Moving over red apples and oranges, these are the fruits we actually want to eat:
#1 ‘Janerek’ (Green Plums)
#2 ‘Loz Akhdar’ (Green Almonds)
#3 ‘Akidinia’ (Loquat)
#4 ‘Bazela’ (Fresh Green Peas)
#5 ‘Hamleh’ (Green Chickpeas)
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
