Do you make a Bracha on a Crab apple tree..?

Thank you very much!


We don’t say birkas ilanos on the fruit of ilaney srak (non fruit bearing trees), and since crab apples are not eaten and not edible, we will not make birka ilanos on such a tree.

  1. I heard some people sometimes bake the crab apples and eat them..
    But it seems most people don’t do that..
    Would that make a difference..?

    Thank you very much!

    • It is possible to eat the fruits of ilanei srak, but they are still ilanei srak.
