The Beracha on Sour Lemons

The Beracha on Sour Lemons
Day: Monday
Date: January 4, 2016
Parshat: Va'era
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 202

One who chooses to eat a sour lemon does not say a beracha if it is overly sour to the point that most people wouldn't eat it. However, if he put sugar on such a lemon the beracha is ha'etz. If the lemon is sour but not too sour to eat the correct beracha is shehakol. On sweet lemons the correct beracha is ha'etz.

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