FAQ version 1.0 
     September 24, 2003  Started at 2am and finished the list by 7am.
                         Few more details to add, but that will be
                         in the next update whenever I get around to
                         it. Hopefully soon, before the end of the 
                         week.

FAQ version 1.0
     December 20, 2004   I fixed a misnamed item. Only thing updated.

-I. How to grow Solar Fruits-
 ---------------------------

Solar Fruits are grown in the hollow roots of the Solar Tree. You
will come across the Solar Tree relatively early in the game after
getting through Bloodrust Mansion and breaking the seal to the next
area, the floating block you may have seen to the east of the path 
before entering the Mansion. It is withered because the energy is 
being sucked out of it by the darkness.

As the name implies, you need Solar energy to grow the Solar Fruits. 
They still grow on their own, but using the Gun del Sol speeds up the 
process GREATLY. Depending on what Fruit you are trying to grow, it 
will take longer. The rarer the item, the longer it will take to grow. 
Makes sense, no? Use either _Sol_ lenses or _Earth_ lenses to make the 
plants grow. (I didn't think of using an Earth lens, I read it on the
Message Boards in a couple of places.)

When you plant item(s) in a root hollow, it starts as a small sprout.
Solar Fruits have 4 phases. The plant grows to its' next phase after 
either a) you supply enough solar power using the Gun del Sol, or 
b) enough time passes where the sun sensor has had solar energy 
hitting it, the plant will grow to the next phase. It gets bigger and 
sprouts leaves in its second phase. In its third phase, a flower 
blooms. In its fourth and final phase, the bloom shrinks a little bit
and the petals are multicolored. Solar Fruits can then be picked by 
walking up to them and pressing A.

A word of warning, be careful when doing this because its VERY easy to
OVERHEAT while growing Solar Fruits if you're in bright direct 
sunlight. ;)

 ----------------------------------
-II. Frames/Lenses that do not work-
 ----------------------------------

The following Frames can't be used to grow Solar Fruits:
        _
Fighter  \
Knife     \
Dagger     > Flat out don't work
Gradius   /
Calamity_/
Phantom (sucks the life out of the plant, since its a Dark Frame)

The following Lens types should NOT be used:

Luna (does absolutely nothing)
Flame (destroys the plants)
Frost (destroys the plants)
Cloud (does absolutely nothing)
Dark (sucks the life out of the plants)
Star (only stores solar energy in the Solar Station)

 -----------------------------
-III. Solar Fruit combinations-
 -----------------------------

If you are low on certain items for combos to make other Solar 
Fruits, you can plant just one item and produce more of that item.
You'll find how many of each you will receive in the below list.

Green Apple  5
Red Apple    3
Gold Apple   2
Heal Fruit   5 (LOTS of solar energy needed)
Solar Nut    3
See-All Nut  2
Tiptoe Nut   3
Speed Nut    2
Banana       4
Evil Banana  3
Redshroom    2
Blueshroom   4
Flame Nut    5
Ice Nut      5
Bearnut      5 (LOTS of solar energy needed)
Enduranut    3
Empty Gourd  3
Solar Leaf   5
Bad Pumpkin  2
Revivafruit  2 (LOTS and LOTS of solar energy needed)
x2 Carrot    5
Fast Carrot  3
