“Blessing on Fruits; The Seven Species; Breslov Tu B’Shevat Customs” (Video, 7:03).
The Seven Species of Eretz Yisrael require special priority during a meal. It’s important which blessing is made first when eating several different types of food because there are different levels of souls in different foods. Showing respect to a soul helps elevate it.
Although students of Rebbe Nachman don’t make a “seder” on Tu B’Shevat, it is customary in the Breslov community to enjoy festive meals including washing for bread, serving at least one or two of the Seven Species, and making the she’hechiyanu blessing on a new fruit. Praying for a beautiful esrog to honor Sukkos is also customary on Tu B’Shevat.
