Halocho #1518 - What happens on Tu B'Shvat?

Our Sages have designated the 15th of Shvat - Tu B'Shvat - as the boundary between one year and another for trees, since (in most years) most of the rain of the winter has already fallen by then.

Any new growth of fruit after this day, is the result of the blessing of the new year.

It is customary to pray for a beautiful Kosher Etrog on Tu B'Shvat.
