To Gerry Yancey You are referring not to the laws of Kosher (permissibility to eat) but to the laws of ritual purity. A plant cannot become impure until detached from the ground and being moistened once with liquid. Even if it becomes impure, it remains permissible to eat. Washing alone does not make it impure, only susceptible to impurity, if something impure (e.g. a dead animal) touches it. One should certainly wash produce before eating. Reply

Kosher plants In listening to the Shabbos’ Parshah, Shemini and I have a question.
A plant growing in the garden is kosher as long as it is in the ground. Once it is removed it can NOT become wet again. I want to know if the “contaminates” from insecticides can be washed from the plant prior to it be consumed? Reply
