The Beracha on Mushrooms

The Beracha on Mushrooms
Day: Thursday
Date: January 7, 2016
Parshat: Va'era
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 204

On milk, meat, fish, eggs, cheese, salt, and anything else not grown from the ground the beracha is shehakol. One who said ha'adama on these is as if he said no beracha and therefore needs to say shehakol. Even though mushrooms grow in the ground, nevertheless, since they are a fungus and do not receive their sustenance from the ground the proper beracha is shehakol. However, one who said haadama does not need to say a new beracha.

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
