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 fruit is added to the series for the first time since Dōbutsu no Mori +. Lychees, Durians, Lemons, Bananas, Mangoes, and Persimmons are the new additions, each being available from Tortimer Island, each selling for 250 Bells. 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.

Obtaining Fruit

000 cherries

Cherries in Dōbutsu no Mori.

Different fruit can be received as a reward or gift from villagers or from the player's Mom in Animal Crossing: 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 Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk they randomly wash up on the beach with shells. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf they are obtained from Tortimer Island. Outside of the island, persimmons can only be obtained in the T&T Emporium .

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, or daily if it's the town's native fruit. 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 of the first five fruits (apple, orange, peach, pear, or cherry) 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 very rarely yield perfect fruit, though burying fertilizer next to the tree increases the chances. Perfect fruit sells for 600 Bells if native, or 3,000 Bells if not. They can only be grown in a town where it is the native fruit, and similarly trees will not have any chance of bearing perfect fruit if it is not of the native type in a respective town. If the player tries to plant a perfect fruit tree where the native fruit doesn't match, then it will just create a regular fruit tree. If perfect fruit are planted, they will grow perfect fruit trees.

Perfect trees yield 3 perfect fruits up to 5-7 times. On the last shake they lose their leaves and will not regrow or bear any further fruit unless replanted. Additionally, one of the final batch of 3 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 them to a villager wanting fruit of any kind, and they will act disgusted, but soon forget.
