The prohibition of Arlah


One may not benefit from the fruit which grows on a tree during the tree's first three years. This law is called Arlah.

This prohibition applies to use of the fruit itself, as well as its seeds, shells, blossoms and skins. However, one may use the branches and leaves of the tree.

(Code of Jewish Law Yoreh Deah 294:1-2)

Have a great day,
