Tu B Shevat marks the beginning of a new year for the trees. In Israel, this is the time of year when almond trees start blooming in pink and white. Jews in the Diaspora would remember the Holy Land by feasting on special produce from Israel, mainly the seven species of the land of Israel as they appear in the Bible: wheat, barley, grape, fig, date, olive and pomegranate.
