Learn about the strength-boosting effect of eating fruit in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Read on to see how to eat fruit and how to remove the temporary burst of strength it gives.

What Does Eating Fruit Do?

Fills Up Your Stamina Gauge

Stamina Gauge.jpg
You can eat fruits to get up to 10 points of stamina, as indicated by the stamina gauge at the top left of the screen, allowing you to do things you cannot normally do in the game.

Other items that can be eaten such as turnips and bamboo shoots also give the same effect.

Allows You to Move Trees

With the temporary boost of strength, you can dig up trees and replant them using a shovel. Pulling up a tree costs you 1 point of stamina.

Allows You to Break Rocks

Using a shovel on a rock will break it, so be careful when you're only trying to farm for ore and other materials. When a rock is destroyed, it will spawn on a random spot the next day. Breaking a rock costs 1 point of stamina.

You can only eat 1 piece of fruit at a time

This goes for other foods as well, like bamboo shoots and mushrooms, except for turnips. You can eat 10 turnips at a time, but we recommend selling them instead!

If you don't have a toilet, you can go the long way which is digging up trees and planting them in the same place, just so you can take up the stamina points.
