Animal Crossing: New Horions (ACNH) - What Happens When You Eat Fruit?

What Does Eating Fruit Do?

Fills Up Your Stamina Gauge

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 Break Rocks
