381. Fruits That Only Contain Juice

52:14 Some fruits, like certain types small of pears, naturally ripen after picking rather than on the tree. On such fruits, we recite ho’eitz because this is their natural way of ripening.

There are some fruits whose only edible part is the juice in their seeds. These are not eaten; the juice is sucked from them and the rest is discarded. We recite shehakol on the juice. Even if one swallowed the peel and the seeds, he would only say shehakol.
