Saying Shehehyanu During the Three Weeks

Saying Shehehyanu During the Three Weeks
Day: Tuesday
Date: July 26, 2016
Parshat: Pinhas
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 551

It is proper to not say the beracha of shehehyanu on new fruits or new clothes during the three weeks. If a person wishes to eat a new fruit or wear a new garment that would require him to say shehehyanu, he should wait until Shabbat and eat the fruit or wear the garment then. During the nine days however one should not wear the new garment even on Shabbat. If a person said a beracha on a fruit not realizing that it was a new fruit and then remembered before biting into it, he should say shehehyanu and then eat from the fruit. One should refrain from saying shehehyanu on the tenth of Av as well. If the fruit will not be available after Tish'a Be'av or it won't be good anymore he may say shehehyanu during the three weeks. If possible he should wait and say it on Shabbat.
