Peppers from Israel
January 16, 2017

Please be aware that red, yellow and orange peppers, as well as other fruits and vegetables from Israel, are consistently being sold in the Baltimore area at produce markets in our neighborhood. From the numerous inquiries we have received, it is apparent that many consumers are unaware of this when shopping. Other examples of produce commonly from Israel are carrots, citrus fruits, persimmons, pomegranates, dates, dill and parsley.

The packages or labels state "Product of Israel." These vegetables require teruma and maaser to be taken. The procedure is listed on our website.
