List of Trees for ‘Birchas Illanos’

‘L’katchila’, the time to recite the Bracha of the trees, ‘Birchas Illanos’, is during the month of Nisan. ‘B’dieved’, the Bracha can be recited after Rosh Chodesh Iyur as well, as long as the trees are in the budding stage.

The Bracha to recite on the budding fruit tree is: “Baruch ata Hashem Elokeinu melech ha’olam shelo chisar ba’olamo klum, uvara vo beriyos tovos v’ilanos tovim lehanos bahem b’nei adam.”

If you know of any other fruit trees where one can recite the Bracha, feel free to list it in the comments section. TLS.

  1. My apple tree usually buds in Nissan, but, this year it is just beginning to bud just now. I don’t know if it will be ready before Rosh Chodesh

  2. If anyone has been able to make the bracha, please post the location of that tree! The tree needs to have visible buds (and I think white flowers).
