Planting seeds from Arlah fruit


We have said that benefit from the fruit of a tree's first three years is prohibited. The prohibition includes planting that tree's fruit, intending to grow a new plant from its seeds.

However, a tree that grows from such planting is permitted. The new tree did not grow exclusively from the forbidden fruit's seed - it also received nourishment from the external environment.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 294:12; Shach Yoreh Deah 294:24)

Have a great day,
