Shehechiyanu on fruit that has been available


One recites a Shehechiyanu only for fruit which goes through periods when it is not available. If it is always around, one does not recite this blessing - even if he goes a long period of time without eating it.

This is one reason why the blessing is recited only on fruit and not on vegetables; more on this in the next post, Gd-willing.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 225:6)

Have a great day,
