"New fruits" which are available all year long


Fruit which is not naturally available all year long, and which is eaten more for pleasure than for nutrition, warrants a Shehechiyanu blessing if one has it for the first time that season - even if it is accessible via import all year.

However, it might be wise to minimize use of this blessing, since authorities have recommended that and since the blessing is optional.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:34)

Have a great day,
