Blossoming Fruit Trees (Seeing)

Last Updated On: 4/23/15

When seeing fruit trees in blossom one should say the Brocho:

Shelo Chisar Beolomo...

  • One should only say this Brachah once a year - even if he/she sees other fruit trees in blossom
  • This Brachah may only be said on fruit-bearing trees
  • If one saw a tree in blossom, and did not say the Brachah, he/she may still say the Brachah as long as the fruits have not fully ripened
  • As always, this is just a small sampling of all the available halachos
