what seems to be the problem
what does tevel mean? what's that got to do with maaser? what's it got to do with shmita? what's it got to do with the fact that i'll be in Eretz Yisroel after shmita is over? what's orla?
call me dense, but i just want a clear answer as to weather i will need to be careful re: hashgacha on produce after Succos
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes

Tevel is food which hasn't had masar or teruma taken
Orla is fruit for the first three years of a fruit tree
