Positive Commandment 119 (Digest)
Fruit of the Fourth Year

"All its fruit shall be holy for praise-giving to G‑d"Leviticus 19:24.

We are commanded to sanctify the fruit produced by a tree in the fourth year [after its planting]. These fruit – like the Second Tithe – are brought to Jerusalem and eaten there by its owners. (The priests have no part of it.)

Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
