Divine Code for November 16, 2022
Today: Pages 294-295
From 9:1 -- 9:6
The classic example of the type of cross-grafting that is forbidden is to graft a shoot from one type of fruit tree (e.g. an apple tree) onto another type of fruit tree (e.g. an orange tree). Similarly, it is forbidden to graft a fruit vine to a fruit tree, or a fruit tree to a fruit vine.
It is permitted for a Gentile to graft a shoot of a fruit tree to a tree that does not bear fruit, or a shoot from a tree that does not bear fruit to a fruit tree. Similarly, one may graft a fruit vine to a non-fruit-bearing grafting of two fruit-vine species is not forbidden.
Obviously, one may graft a shoot from one tree that does not bear fruit to another such tree; this is not the type of cross-grafting which the Torah forbids.
