Subject:  fruit juice
Message:  in his sefer on page 62 siman #60, your father holds "ha'etz" is is the proper bracha on orange juice, apple juice, and grapefruit juice.

1 = does this apply to any other fruit juice?
for example, what is the bracha on peach nectar, mango nectar, guava juice, pineapple juice, etc....

2 = does this only apply to fresh squeezed juice, or also to juice made from concentrate?

3 = when the ingredients list water and then the fruit juice (orange or apple for example) -- is it shahakol or ha'etz?

thank you.
Reply:  1) Yes

2) All of the above

3) Use your judgment.... 10% fruit Juice is not Ha'Etz, but 50% certainly is. Is it fruit juice or is it juice drink with some fruit juice in it so they can write "natural" on the container.
