When to Check Fruit for Bugs

When to Check Fruit for Bugs
Day: Tuesday
Date: January 26, 2016
Parshat: Yitro
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 206

After saying a beracha one should eat from the food right away and not wait - preferably not even in silence. Any fruit, such as dates, that may contain worms or bugs needs to be checked before eating any part of it. The fruit should be checked before the beracha is said so that no time will be wasted between the beracha and tasting the food. However, if before checking one said the beracha on a fruit that often has bugs, he should not have any of it until he checks.
