Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives you a lot of control over your deserted island paradise. Early on you can choose from an assortment of different layouts, and later in the game you can pretty much redo the map to your liking. But one thing is still random and out of your control. What fruits you have native to your island. But there are ways to get everyone else. Here's how to get peaches, cherries, pears, apples, oranges, and other fruits in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
How to get peaches, cherries, pears and other fruits
Any fruit that grows on your island is considered the native fruit. Any tree found naturally will grow this one, be it peaches, apples, oranges, or something else. You can harvest them and sell them for Bells, but they aren't worth as much as any other type of fruit that isn't native to your island. But where do you find them?
The answer is quite simple: other islands. Other players and random islands in the game will offer these different types of fruit. In total, there are the five main types: apples, oranges, cherries, pears and peaches. There are also exotic fruits like coconuts. To get them, you need to visit other islands. For the main types, you can simply visit a friend's island through multiplayer. But what about the others? What if you don't have any friends? Well, for an additional type of fruit, you can just wait for a letter from your mom, which will contain a random alien fruit.
For the rest, there is the Nook Miles Ticket. You'll get one for free from Tom Nook and can purchase more for 3000 Nook Miles. It's expensive, so see how to earn more here. Well worth it, as this ticket can be redeemed at the airport to take you to a mysterious and random island. You'll find all sorts of different fruits there, as well as insects and fish.
These are the two main ways to get peaches, cherries, pears, apples, oranges, and other fruits in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Once you have it, be sure to plant it. The fruit will take longer to grow (about three days), but it is also three times more valuable.
