Any one know where there are any fruit trees eligable to say a bracha on. (Im willing to go an hour away from brooklyn)April 14, 2015 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #1072258Yayin Yashan B’Kli ChadashParticipant
Three are dozens in Brooklyn. Just search for the listing, someone made a compilation. (I think I saw it in the newspaper, I’m assuming its online.) I usually do it by one on avenue L and east tenth. There’s a prominent spot on avenue O and east tenth area. Sign in front and multiple trees. All this info is also in the listing, so I know I can post it.April 14, 2015 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1072259HaLeiViParticipant
It’s a list of fruit trees, not of blossoming trees.April 14, 2015 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1072260hakohen53Participant
I usually do it on a fruit tree in my brother’s backyard, but as of yesterday the tree was not ready for a bracha yet. There were no blooms yet. Anybody know of any trees in Flatbush that are already blooming and are ready for the bracha?April 15, 2015 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1072261golferParticipant
HaLeivi, the Bracha is recited next to a fruit tree that is blossoming. That’s why the list is so useful. There are many varieties of blossoming trees that don’t bear fruit. Even if they’re called “cherry blossoms”, most of those trees are a different variety and never go on to produce a real edible cherry. And for those of us in the NE US, (that’s you in Flatbush, hakohen & hocker in brooklyn) it’s possible Rosh Chodesh Iyar will have arrived before we see a fruit tree blossom. We still have a few days left and have to hope they’re warm and sunny enough to unfurl those buds, though most will agree that the Bracha can be recited even after Nisan.April 15, 2015 11:16 am at 11:16 am #1072262147Participant
most will agree that the Bracha can be recited even after Nisan like we Australian Jews, who do not recite Berocho until some 6 months after Nisson, during Tishri. In fact we often utilize this Berocho as an opportunity to gain 1 extra Mitzwah during the Asseres Yemei Yeshuvo.April 15, 2015 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #1072263Avram in MDParticipant

Grape vines are included in the brocha; they are not ready yet.April 15, 2015 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1072268HaLeiViParticipant
Golfer, not every tree that will blossom, did blossom.
