Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains one of the most popular titles for the Nintendo Switch, even in 2023. Whether you're a new player or a veteran since 2020, you are likely captivated by the game's expansiveness and addictive gameplay loop. From building out your island to discovering new materials and tools, you never run out of things to do in Animal Crossing.
As you progress in New Horizons, you will be required to find more and more items. One of the main items you will always need more of is food. More specifically, fruit, as this is one of the main crops you will find immediately on your island. While your island is full of one type of fruit, you might be wondering where to find more. If you've ever wondered how to find apples in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have come to the right place.
This guide will explain precisely how and where you can find apples in Animal Crossing.
Finding apples in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Firstly, you'll need 2000 Nook Miles. Complete the game's many objectives to earn these, then spend them at a Nook Point to buy a Nook Miles Ticket. Once you have it, head to Dodo Airlines, and you'll be whisked away to another island.
These islands tend to have randomly assigned fruit, so keep your eyes peeled for any trees that don't have the same fruit as what you already have.
Once you find an apple tree on a new island, give it a shake and eat the apples that fall. This will strengthen your character enough to uproot the tree with a single shovel dig.
All done with your apple picking? Great, just head back to the plane and return to your island with your new tree and plant it – giving you apples all year round.
You can choose to plant more apple trees if you wish or just have the one that you will find replenished from time to time. Either way, you now have a constant source of apples that you didn't have before in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
