Terumah from fruit purchased from fruit bin

Question:

If I purchase a bag full of fruit from a bin in a produce store, can I take Terumot and maasrot from the whole bag. Or do I need to take from each fruit. My concern is that perhaps he has received fruits from different vendors and it may be min hachiuv al haptur.

Answer:

Thank you for your question.

If there is no reason to assume that the fruit is from different vendors then we don’t have assume it. If there is reason to assume that it isn’t from the same batch i.e. the fruits look like some are new and some are old, then it would be different.
