Bracha on fruits on Rosh Hashana

Question:

Can you please tell me if one should say “hoetz” on a fruit eaten near the beginning of the meal on Rosh Hashana, after already having made hamotzi? Should one say “haodama” on beets used as simanim eaten after the fruit?

Thank you!

Answer:

One should say Haetz, on the fruit eaten, because fruits are not normally included in the Hamotzei being that they are not usually eaten together with bread as part of mainstay of the meal. The vegetables however are eaten as part of the filling part of a meal and there we don’t make a bracha before eating them.
