May one pick lemons or other citrus fruit in his house garden and eat it “under the tree” without Terumos Umaasros?
A regular house garden is considered a Chatzer Hamishtameres which can be Koveia for Maaser, and it is hence forbidden for one to eat more than one piece at a time. Accordingly, one may not pick a citrus fruit and eat it under the tree without taking off Terumos and Maasors, being that a single fruit contains many pieces that are separate from each other.
