PHOTOS: Readers have notified TLS of at least two local stores selling fruits which are products of Israel. The NJ Farm Market on Route 9, as well as Costco, are currently carrying fruits which are products of Israel, readers say.
These peppers were sold in the NJ Farm Market on Route 9, and the pictured clementines were sold in Costco, readers say.
“Besides all the ingredients and processing concerns which surround the kosher consumer, additional kashrus requirements apply to foods grown, produced, or imported from Israel,” Star-K writes. “A consumer must be sure that terumos and ma’asros have been properly separated before eating, and that the fruits do not come from trees that are orla or neta revai or shmitta.” [TLS]
