Over the weekend, due to its hefty price tag, a photo of a box of sour green plums - aka jenerik - went viral on Lebanese social media.
Fadi Fruits, a Lebanese fruit shop located in Jnah, was selling a 300-gram box of the fruit for 61,000 LBP ($40). So, one kilogram of the fruit costs 200,000 LBP ($132), a real monetary investment for many people in Lebanon.
In a report published by LBC Lebanon, the insanely expensive price tag was confirmed. The owner of the shop spoke to LBC Lebanon, explaining that the fruit was imported from Turkey due to high demand.
Of course, people in Lebanon couldn't help but crack jokes at the news ... and they're beyond hilarious.
