A Jewish festival called Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot, literally 'New Year of the Trees'.

Tu B'Shevat is a Jewish holiday that is held on the 15th day of Shevat (a month of the Jewish calendar). On this day, Jews celebrate trees and plants by eating fresh fruit (whatever is in season) and/or planting a tree.

In Israel, Tu B'Shevat has become a national holiday. It is customary to eat a great amount of fruit on Tu' B'Shevat particularly fruits that are grown in Israel including bokser (carob pods), oranges, avocados, banana, kiwi, dried plums, melons and dried apricots. The seven spices of Israel: wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranates, olive (oil), and date (honey).

The seven species of the land of Israel are listed in the biblical verse Deuteronomy 8:8: a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and [date] honey. (Creative Commons)

As with other Jewish festivals, Tu B'Shevat begins at sunset and ends at sundown on the following day.
