Fruit is a common item that grows from fruit trees in all Animal Crossing series titles. It can be eaten in most games and is sometimes requested by villagers.

Each town starts with one of 5 types of fruit as its native fruit. There is a 20% chance for the town to have any given native fruit. Native fruits sell for 100 bells, but other fruits sell for 500, with the exception of coconuts being 100-500 Bells depending on the game.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, new fruits have been added to the series for the first time since Animal Forest +. Lychees, Durians, Lemons, Bananas, Mangoes, and Persimmons* are the new additions. Each fruit is available from Tortimer Island or from T&T Emporium, and each selling for 250 Bells. In addition, coconuts have had their price fixated at 250 bells, since they are an Island fruit. Another addition is the ability for 9 items of the same fruit to be stacked, saving space in the inventory. However, fruits do not automatically stack, and the player must manually stack them.

*Persimmons are only available from T&T Emporium and cannot be found on Tortimer Island.

Obtaining Fruit

Different fruit can be received as a reward or gift from villagers or from the player's Mom in Wild World and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. In most games, sending a villager a one-line letter with a piece of fruit can initiate a random fruit being sent in return. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Isabelle will eventually give the player 3 pieces of a second, non-native fruit when her tutorial has been completed.

Coconuts are found in various ways. In GCN games, they are obtained from the Island. In Wild World and City Folk, they randomly wash up on the beach with shells. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, they are obtained from Tortimer Island.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the player may get non-native fruits during the Harvest Festival when catching a fish that a villager requested.

Fruit Trees

Fruit trees are special trees that grow 3 pieces of fruit every 3 days. Coconut trees must be planted within one acre of the sea, and all trees must grow at least 1 space away from other objects. Banana trees must be planted on the beach. Fruit can be shaken out of trees that bear them.

Perfect Fruit

Perfect fruits make their first appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Any and all of the first five fruits (apples, oranges, peaches, pears, and/or cherries) can be perfect, and look slightly different to their regular counterparts. Usually, at least one perfect fruit of the native type will appear at the start of the game. Trees can very rarely yield perfect fruit, though burying fertilizer next to the tree increases the chances of this happening. Perfect fruit sells for 600 Bells if it is native, or 3,000 Bells if not native. They can only be grown in a town where it is the native fruit, and said trees will have no chance of bearing perfect fruit if it is not the town's native fruit. If the player tries to plant a perfect fruit tree where it isn't the native fruit, it will just create a regular fruit tree. However, when a native perfect fruit is planted, it will grow a perfect fruit tree.

Perfect trees yield 3 perfect fruits up to 5-7 times. On the last shake, they will lose their leaves and will not regrow or bear any further fruit unless replanted. Additionally, on of the final batch, one of the perfect fruits will be a rotten fruit. The "dead" tree can be cut down to be replaced. Rotten fruits have a disposal fee of 500 bells, and if one is planted, it will create a dead sapling. However, they can be fed to a villager wanting fruit of any kind, although it will cause them to act disgusted (they will forget about it later). If a player leaves a rotten fruit on the ground, ants will regularly come onto it, and can be easily caught.
