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 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. 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 FruitDifferent fruit can be received as a reward or gift from villagers or from the player's Mom in Wild World and 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 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 New Leaf, they are obtained from Tortimer Island.
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 fruits make their first appearance in 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 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.
