Fallen fruits

Fruits which fell off a tree:[1]

All fruits which have fallen off a tree on Shabbos are forbidden to be eaten until after Shabbos[2] and are therefore Muktzah[3]. [Furthermore, even if there is doubt as to if the fruits fell on Shabbos or beforehand it is forbidden.[4]]



Are vegetables which detached from the ground on Shabbos forbidden to be eaten?[5]

Yes. Hence they are Muktzah.

[2] The reason for this is due to a decree one may come to pluck a fruit from the tree on Shabbos. Alternatively it is because the fruit is Muktzah as one did not have it in mind from before Shabbos. [M”B 322/7]
