The Blessings Over Food: Ha’ah’dama / Vegetables

The blessing recited over produce that grows from the ground is ha’ah’dama. Certain produce that are called fruit actually receive the ha’ah’dama blessing because of how they grow - for instance, bananas.

Ba’ruch Ah’tah Ah’doh’nai Eh’lo’hay’nu Melech ha’o’lam bo’ray p’ree ha’ah’dama.

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the ground.
