Bracha on fragrant blossom of tree during orlah period

undefined

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Tammuz 9, 5769
Question
Can one have Hana’a on the fragrance of a blossoing fruit tree during the three year orlah period?
Answer
Shut Ateret Paz [1, B, YD 16] concludes that even though one cannot benefit the smell of orlah fruit [though others dispute this stringency], the blossoming trees can be, and a bracha should be recited.
