Mini Lemon’s from Garden over Shmita

Question:

Good Day, We have a mini lemon tree in our garden, here in Israel. I have picked a number of the lemons. Can I consume them or do I need to give them away ? Thanks

 

Answer:

There is no need for you to give them away. There is a mitzva called “biur”, which is that when there are no longer fruits on the trees etc. for the animals to pick from, then we have to remove what we have from our homes. This time has surely not come yet, as the lemons trees, because as for now (Adar1 5782) lemons are just starting to become shemitta.
Best wishes
