Typically, dry fruit and nut sales for the Jewish New Year for trees in Israel amount to about 13 percent of the 3 billion shekels in annual sales for those foods. About 50-70 percent of Israeli households buy extra dry fruits and nuts for the quasi-chag – primarily dates and walnuts, although prunes, raisins, apricots, and almonds are also popular.
