What are the 7 fruits that were mentioned in the bible?

Asked 3 years ago

I was told by a Jewish friend that they have 7 special fruits in Israel. He called it "shivat haminim". Unfortunately, he couldn't tell me which fruit in the English language. What are the 7 fruits, and are they mentioned in the bible?

Shiv'at HaMinim is seven species of agricultural products, two are grains and five are fruits. We read about it in Deuteronomy 8:8. They are wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olive (oil) and dates (honey). Their first fruits were the only acceptable offerings in the temple of Jerusalem.
