HaGefen on grapes? (Halacha a day)

The correct Bracha before eating grapes is בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הָעֵץ – “who creates the fruit of the tree”.

The correct Bracha before drinking wine is בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגֶּפֶן – “who creates the fruit of the vine”.

If one mistakenly says בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הַגֶּפֶן on grapes, one can eat the grapes without making another Bracha, since grapes are also the “fruit of the vine.”

If one mistakenly says בּוֹרֵא פְּרִי הָעֵץ on wine, then one should try correct it immediately (within the time it takes to say 3 words). If one delayed longer than that, one can still drink the wine without another Bracha.
