This is your ultimate guide to Fortnite’s new Reality Seeds and Saplings. Harvest fruit to collect some awesome loot!

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 launched on Sunday following one of the most popular live events to date. The update included new weapons, big map changes, and even the return of Console Cash Cups.

A new biome full of purple trees and mushrooms has blossomed on the Island thanks to the arrival of the Reality Tree. This fungal forest is set to pop up in other areas around the map throughout the season.

One exciting gameplay feature to stem from this is the ability to grow and harvest Reality Saplings. Players can weed these Saplings, which stay in the same place match-to-match, in order to yield increasingly powerful loot.

Here’s how to get started:

Firstly, you’re going to need a Reality Seed. These can be obtained either by visiting the new Reality Falls POI and breaking open one of the bulbs pictured below, or by picking the fruit from someone else’s Reality Sapling (which are small purple plants that display the owner’s name when you go near them).

The next step is planting your seed to produce a Reality Sapling. To do this, simply throw the Reality Seed at the ground. It will grow in the same place every match, so choose somewhere near your favorite drop spot. Don’t worry, if you change your mind you can just plant another seed and your Sapling will move to that location.

Now, in your next match, go back and find your Reality Sapling. There will be three weeds around it that you need to interact with to remove.

Once you’ve done this, you will see your sapling grow. It will also sprout fruit, which will drop a selection of Rare (Blue) weapons when you pick it, plus a couple of healing items.

Each time you weed your Reality Sapling, the quality of the loot drops increases – right up to Mythic rarity! However, there is a long cooldown after every weeding. You can check this by opening your map and looking under Sapling Status.

That’s about all there is to it. You’ll be a professional Reality Sapling farmer in no time!

This is a really cool new system for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, and a great way to get guaranteed loot every game. Do note though that Reality Seeds and Sapling are not available in competitive playlists.
