The Hebrew word sheva means seven, shavu'ah means week, and shavu'ot means weeks. Exactly seven weeks after the first harvest of barley is the celebration of Shavuot ("weeks"), one of the three pilgrimage holidays where Israel would come to the mishkan (and later the Temple) to present the firstfruits of their spring crops before the LORD. Since Shavuot occurs on the 50th day after Passover, the Greek translators of the Torah called this day "Pentecost."
Wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates (Deut. 8:8). As soon as an Israelite farmer saw the first sign of ripening fruit in his field or orchard, he would tie a string or ribbon around it and designate it as bikkurim.
