|Click leaf blocks to harvest fruit.|
Fruit trees are found growing naturally in the wild in areas with an average biome temperature between 10 and 25, and a Rainfall value of at least 500.
Fruit trees can be found growing naturally in the wild in temperate areas with a high Rainfall values. Different regions will spawn different kinds of fruit trees. For example, Date fruit trees can be found growing in Africa. Fruit trees can be chopped to obtain Fruitwood.
In deserts, rain is doubled or set to 200 near water, whichever is higher. This allows fruit trees to generate in oases.
To grow a fruit tree, the player must first obtain a fruit tree sapling. Fruit tree saplings can be obtained by placing 40 oz of the desired tree's fruit in the middle of a Large Ceramic Vessel. Then, put at least 2 dirt of any type in every other slot of the vessel. Once the fruit decays to 50% decay, a fruit tree sapling will replace the fruit, and 1 dirt from every slot will be consumed. The vessel should be left unsealed in order to let the fruit decay and for the sapling to grow. If the vessel is sealed, a sapling will not appear.
|Prepared for growth||Grown|
Fruit tree saplings do not grow instantaneously. One vertical block of the fruit tree will only grow every 2 months. A branch of the fruit tree will only every 1.5 months.
Fruit trees will produce a single piece of fruit per leaf block during their harvest seasons. To harvest the fruit, or the leaves and the fruit will drop. All fruit trees drop pieces of fruit ranging from 4 to 16 oz in weight.

Banana trees and date palms are unique trees that visually appear more like palm trees. The fruit of palm trees hang off the trees instead of appearing on the trees themselves.
Note: In colder/drier climates during Autumn, leaves turn brownish-orange for all trees.

- Fruit trees only produce fruit when the current temperature is between 0 and 38. For the majority of cases, the seasonal requirements (Spring to Late Autumn) already fall into this temperature range, with the exception being extreme areas such as deserts, very few jungles near the equator, and the deep tundra.
