During the course of Pikmin 3, the three captains collect Fruit and return them to the S.S. Drake, their ship. The premise of this job is to collect the seeds of the fruit to grow on Koppai and to turn the remainder of the fruit into juice to supply the captains with food for the day. Each fruit provides a different amount of juice for the explorers. The basis of Pikmin 3's plot revolves around collecting fruit, similar to the S.S. Dolphin's ship parts in Pikmin, and treasures in Pikmin 2. There are a total of 66 pieces of fruit to collect. Several fruits from Pikmin 3 originally appeared in Pikmin 2 as Treasures.

This video gives us our first look on fruit:
- According to Brittany's notes, Alph is allergic to the Heroine's Tear and the Scaly Custard.
- All the fruits in Pikmin 3 appear to be fresh and undamaged, which is odd, considering some of them are burried, underwater, not growing on any plant (except a few), and even ingested by creatures.
- The box art on the back of the disk box shows pikmin carrying a pomegranate, however no pomegranates appear in game.
