Need Another Blessing?

Question

If I eat a fruit and say the blessing (“borei pri ha’etz”) for eating fruit, and than open the fridge and decide to eat a different type of fruit, and a few minutes later I choose to eat a third type of fruit: Do I need to say the blessing again before eating each fruit?

  1. If when you made the initial blessing you knew that there were other kinds of fruits in the fridge, then you do not need to make another blessing. But if you were not aware that there were, the best thing is to make an after-blessing, wait a short period of time, and then make a new blessing over the new fruit.
