The purpose of fruit is to provide a new farming mechanism to earn SFL in the game. It follows a similar gameplay mechanic to crops so it can be understood easily, but adds a few variations for added interest.
What can you do with fruit?
- Complete Bumpkin Quests and mint wearables
- Make food and sell it at the Grub Shop
- Make food and level up your Bumpkin
- Sell it at the Market for SFL
- Craft rare SFTs with the fruit
You can buy fruit seeds & sell fruit at the Market.
Prices below are based on SFL prices as of 5th January 2023. Note, each seed produces between 3-5 pieces of fruit.
Fruit seeds can only be planted on Fruit patches. You encounter these roughly on your 9th expansion.
When you plant a fruit seed, you must wait a period of time before you can harvest the fruit.
Unlike crops, fruit can be harvested multiple times before the plant dies. This means that once a Fruit has grown, it can be harvested, the player waits and then it can be harvested again.
Each fruit can be harvested between 3-5 times. This is randomly set each time and you won't know how many harvests a fruit has left.
Once you have fully harvested the fruit, the tree will die. You will then need to dig up the tree (using an axe) and collect 1 piece of wood.
Once a player reaches level 15, they are able to build the Smoothie Shack. Here you can make quick smoothies to feed your Bumpkin or sell at the Grub Shop.
Are you an avid fruit picker?
If you visit the fruit NPC to the North West of your main island, you may be able to mint free wearables. By completing quests, you can prove that you are a dedicated fruit picker and hopefully attain some limited edition clothing!
These challenges do not require you to burn the fruit.
There are a range of rare SFTs that apply utility to fruits.
- 1.Foreman Beaver - Can chop down Apple Tree and Orange Tree without axes. This does not apply to Bluberry Bushes
- 2.Kuebiko - Free seeds!
It wouldn't be a feature without some exciting SFTs to craft! During beta testing, there were 25 players which gathered between 0-30 pieces of fruit. There is an increased supply of public fruit SFTs to account for these. An additional 10 supply is also reserved for the team supply.
