Native Fruit- This is the fruit you start off with in your town. Only sells for 100 bells, but if you take it to your friends town, and they have a different native fruit, Your fruit will sell for 500 in their Nooks. Foreign Fruit- Any fruit you get from a friends town, in the mail, basically any fruit that isnt your native fruit. Instead of selling this fruit for 500 bells in your Nooks, plant it, so in a couple of days youll have 3! Keep planting the fruits and soon you'll be rolling the bells. Coconuts- Coconuts are the only "special" fruit. They aren't found in the mail or native to ANY town, they only wash up on shore sometimes. Another special condition with this fruit is that it must be planted close to the ocean. ============================================================ NOTE: Some misunderstand by what "Close to the ocean means, It can't be planted on the sand, it must be planted within 10 spaces from the LOWEST part of the sand, or 9 spaces from the HIGHEST part of the sand. ============================================================ Flowers- Flowers are a bit more "real" this time around in AC, they can be picked up and be put in your inventory, and then be planted somewhere else. Flowers also "wither" or die after 2 to 3 days. Use your watering can to make them alive again the next day. ============================================================ NOTE: If a plant is withered and you press B to put it into your inventory, you will instead pull it out like a weed anstead of putting it into your inventory. ============================================================ Weeds- Weeds appear every day and are llok like 2 pieces of grass sticking out of the ground. Press B to pull them out. If you ever see a Giant red flower (its called a Rafflesia) in your town, it means you have WAY TOO MANY weeds in your town. You have to pull out every single weed to get rid of it. ======================================================================== 17] Visitors ======================================================================== *Coming soon!* ======================================================================== 18] House Expansions ======================================================================== *Coming soon!* ======================================================================== 19] FAQ ======================================================================== Here are some of the most FAQ's ive seen asked on the Message boards, so I'll answer them now.
