    1,000’s of Esrogim Destroyed

    Thousands of Calabria Esrogim imported from Italy were destroyed by toxic sprays while being inspected by the Ministry of Agriculture, the first time officials demanded to inspect them upon arrival in Israel. One seller said they may sue the Department, claiming officials were aware the Esrogim would be damaged by the spray. Photos

    The amount of work that goes into the esrogim to make sure that theyre actually kosher for a mitzva, makes them much more expensive than “just a fruit” . But it’s very typical of the messed up Israeli bureaucracy to do something as stupid as this!!!

    Duh

    That’s mold, plain and simple. Looks like poor storage to me, and now someone’s trying to re-coup their losses by blaming ‘toxic spray’. Um…….. where’s the evidence of a chemical analysis of this so-called spray?

    People can be so mind-numbingly naïve sometimes.

    mold spreads to areas around it so if one esrog in the box was moldy then…
