Animal Crossing New Horizons - How to get perfect fruit

There are so many creative ways to earn Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, one of which is by selling fruit.

Fruit is one of the most common commodities in Animal Crossing, and vendors will always take any fruit you can give them. Of course, finding different kinds of fruit will take some time, like the process of finding apples, but you can eventually have a complete fruit garden.

However, there is a way to up your fruit game even more in New Horizons.

At a level above regular fruit, there is the perfect fruit, a rarer and more expensive form of the regular varieties. Perfect fruit are some of the most sought-after and profitable items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and we will show you exactly how to get this specific type of fruit.

Getting perfect fruit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Luckily, there are a few ways to get perfect fruit. Your first chance to get it is at the beginning of the game, where some perfect fruit will spawn somewhere on your island. However, only native fruit trees can produce this variety, so ensure you have plenty of native fruit on your island.

Perfect fruit growing on your island is rare, but they are very valuable when they do appear.

If you want to increase your chances of finding it, you should plant a perfect fruit when you stumble upon one. If you do this, you may get a tree that will produce only perfect fruit.

What is perfect fruit?

Perfect fruit is a different variation of the regular fruit that will appear on trees within your village. The aspect that makes the fruit so valuable is that it's rare, and it can sell for anything from 600 Bells and upwards.

  • Apple
  • Cherry
  • Coconut
  • Orange
  • Pear
