Fruit Trees and Tea Trees

screen shot

Growing trees on your farm is fairly easy to do. You just need to make space for them to grow. Trees don't even need to be watered!

There are two types of "trees"; ones that produce fruit and the other that produces tea leaves. Fruit trees will flower and produce fruit in specific seasons and there's at least one type of tree producing each season. Tea trees will produce leaves during Spring, Summer, and Fall season but not in Winter. Trees will last throughout the year and can't be destroyed by storms. If you do want to destroy a tree growing on your farm, hit it with your Axe.

The two types of trees have different space requirements. Fruit trees need a 3x3 square of soil to grow in but tea trees only need 1 square of soil, just like a regular seasonal crop. Tea trees can be planted together in a row but fruit trees are so large that they can't be linked together by a furrow.

You can start growing trees in your first Winter season, when Gombe starts to sell Tea Tree seedlings for 1000 G each. Starting in year 2, you can buy fruit tree seedlings from him. The cheapest is a Cherry Tree Seeding (100 G) and the most expensive is the 2000 G Cacao Tree Seedling. Gombe will sell different tree seedlings depending on the season you're in. You can't buy the last type of tree until you've reached Fall of year 3.

To plant a tree, prepare the soil just like you were planting a regular crop. A Tea Tree Seedling can be planted in one square of soil but the fruit tree seedling needs 9 square of soil. The game will give you a grid outline when you have a fruit tree seedling equipped and you have the correct amount of space prepared for planting. If you try to plant when you don't have the right 3x3 square highlighted, then the game will stop you and return a warning message on your top screen.

Because fruit trees are so large, you initially only have enough room on the Konohana farm to plant them. You can plant fruit trees on the Bluebell farm but you need to have Eileen complete the Make Field "C" expansion. The field expansion will unlock a 5 square by 4 square field behind your house, just large enough for one fruit tree to be planted on the Bluebell farm.

Planting a fruit tree on the Bluebell farm is the only way to get bees to produce Fruit Honey. You will have a 30% chance of collecting Fruit Honey from your bee hives when you harvest them. Tea trees do not count towards collecting Fruit Honey.

To harvest a fruit tree, press A when you see fruit on the tree to make the fruit to drop onto the ground. You can also jump and press A to grab the fruit from the tree.

Trees need to be in their Stage 4 mode for a minimum number of days before they will bloom at the beginning of the season they produce in.

For example, if you planted a Mandarin Seedling on Summer 21, the tree will reach Stage 4 on Fall 24. The tree needs to be in Stage 4 for 14 days but there are only 7 days left in Fall before the Winter-producing season starts. This means that you will not get Mandarins on your tree when Winter begins. Trees will not start producing mid-season and so you will not be able to get Mandarins until the following Winter. You would of needed to plant the Mandarin Seedling one week earlier (Summer 14) to make sure it had 14 days worth of Stage 4 before Winter 1 arrived.

The last day of the year you can plant a fruit tree and get crops when its producing season begins is:

  • Cherry Tree: Fall 14
  • Banana Tree: Winter 08
  • Peach Tree: Winter 27
  • Apple Tree: Spring 27
  • Grape Tree: Spring 14
  • Mandarin Tree: Summer 14
  • Coffee Tree: Winter 10
  • Cacao Tree: Spring 08
