Joseph Kayeri asks:


As for the Tosfot in Taanit 19b, what is exactly the meaning of sefichei ilanot?

Sefihei zeraim is understandable. But ilanot, not that clear.

Is there some explanation?

The Kollel replies:


Based on the Lashon of Tosfos, it seems that, as opposed to fruit that has already begun to grow when Shemitah begins, Sefichei Ilanos is fruit that begins to grow only after Shemitah begins.

By the way, you could have asked the same question on Rashi, who also mentions Sechifim here.
