To get all the Animal Crossing New Horizons fruit you are going to have to travel and work with friends. There's six types of fruit in total, but you only get one growing natively on your island. That means to collect the full set you'll have travel to random islands in the hope of finding different specimens, or coordinate with friends to swap and trade across the range. Not only is getting everything satisfying but you can also sell 'foreign' fruit for lots of Bells. And making money is always handy. 

So to help you out, here's all the Animal Crossing New Horizons fruit types and how to get them. 

  • Apple
  • Cherry
  • Coconut
  • Orange
  • Pear
  • Peach

You will get one natively growing per island, as we've mentioned, but here's how to get the rest:

Use Nook Miles Tickets to visit random islands

Once you've paid off your initial moving fees for the island - that 5,000 Mile toll from Tom Nook - you'll unlock the ability to spend your Miles on all sorts of things, including Nook Miles Tickets. Purchased from the Nook Stop in Resident Services for 2,000 Miles a pop, they allow you to temporary travel to another randomly generated island, which will have the chance of spawning a different fruit type - along with a tonne of other resources of course. 

Plus, these islands will always have palm trees on the beach, for nabbing yourself a coconut or 10. Make sure to plant your 'nuts on the beach when you're back home too, they won't grow anywhere else. 

Co-ordinate with your buddies / the internet to collect 'em all

If you really want to get all the Animal Crossing: New Horizons fruit fast, you'll need to coordinate with your fellow Animal Crossing-playing buddies to do a fruit swap. Or, put out your shout on the internet and see who replies. It can be a wonderful world out there so get travelling.

You can do this via the Airport of course, you'll just need their Dodo ID, or already be friends on Switch, in order to make the trip.

Can you get perfect fruit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons perfect fruit feels like a bit of a myth right now. In New Leaf, you had a high chance of getting a perfect fruit version of your native fruit growing on a single tree. These perfect fruit will retail for 3000-odd bells instead of the usual 600, so it was quite the little money maker. 

But so far, it seems it's unconfirmed whether you can get perfect fruit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but we'll keep you posted if we discover, or hear, anything different.
