There are 2 Blessings made on Fruit Trees
1. The following Bracha (Fruit Tree Blessing) is said, during the Jewish month of Nisan ניסן, spring time (March-May) in front of Fruit Trees in blossom anywhere in the world. In colder climates it can be said later when the fruit trees begin to flower.
בָּרוּך אַתָּה ה' אֱלֹקֵינוּ מֶלֶך הָעוֹלָם, שֶלֹּא חִסַּר בְּעוֹלָמוֹ כְּלוּם
וּבָרָא בוֹ בְּרִיּוֹת טוֹבוֹת וְאִילָנוֹת טוֹבוֹת, לֵהָנוֹת בָּהֶן בְּנֵי אָדָם
Boruch Ata Hashem Elokeinu Melech Haolam Shelo Chisar Ba'olamo Klum,
Uvara Vo Beriyos Tovos V'ilanos Tovos, Lehanos Bahem B'nei Adam.
Translation: Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has made nothing lacking in His world, and created in it goodly creatures and goodly trees, to give man pleasure.
