When we think of spring, one thing comes to mind: biting into a delicious Growfruit. You know about Growfruit, right? Green with yellow and blue stripes – delicious. Surely you’ve eaten a thousand of them. No? Well, starting on March 22, you’ll be able to grow them in The Sims 4 as part of a new in-game challenge!

Grow Growfruit and Hunt Eggs in The Sims 4 Spring Challenge Blog Post by SimGuruGnome

Grow Fruit, Get Rewards

Quote :
You might notice a new Sim in The Sims 4 named Jasmine Holiday. She’s not some random townie – she’s carrying Growfruit seeds, and if your Sim talks to her, she’ll hand one over.
After you get a Growfruit, you’ll need to have your Sim use their green thumb to plant it to make a Growfruit tree. This tree will – you guessed it – grow more Growfruit. Once you get 20, bring them back to Jasmine Holiday to unlock a reward: a new planter. If you’re able to grow a perfect Growfruit, then she’ll unlock an even cooler, bedazzled planter for you. Not bad, right?


Quote :
But this isn’t the only challenge in this update. If you were playing The Sims 4 this time last year, you might remember seeing fanciful eggs scattered around the world. They’re back, kicking off the second annual Bunny Egg Hunt. There are 12 Eggs to collect (up from 10 last year), and if your Sim gathers them all, they’ll unlock an adorable stuffed bunny.

But, just as the season itself, these in-game challenges won’t last forever. They’re only going to be available for the next month – so if you want to get the planters or the stuffed bunny, get ready to start hunting for eggs and growing Growfruit on March 22!

Well hopefully this year I will remember to play these challenges. I started last year, got one egg then I got sidetracked. Laughing

Yeah, the eggs are back! I thought there looked like two new styles. Smile
The Growfruit looks like ( sounds like ) fun. Is that going to be only for a month also?

Not really sure yet. From the blog post they are initially connected to Jasmine Holiday (a new Sim). You can bet there will be rooms saved to the gallery with Growfruit or they will be in buydebug

I was just thinking that if Jasmine is difficult to run into it could be difficult for my Sim(s) to get the Growfruit, etc., since I haven't been able to play much. Oh, well. Must wait and see.

The blog post says this starts today. That means a patch today. Anyone seen any patch notes yet?

Had a quick peek at the game on my break.
There is a pop-up right after the game loads with quick tips on the Spring Challenge.  To find Jasmine it says to look at the Community Gardens in Willows Creek and Oasis Springs. I chose the one near the Tree entrance to the secret lot. There she was in a special jacket tending the plants. Social interactions are limited to Ask about the Egg Hunt, Ask about Growfruit Challenge and Ask for Fertilizer. You can also Ask for Growfruit Starter Pack.
Be sure to ask for the fertilizer. It is a Super Fertilizer and helps the Growfruit tree spring up quickly.  I chose a save that already has a select few Perfect trees and plants. As soon as I could I took a cutting of the Growfruit tree and grafted it to a Perfect Pomegranate tree.
Then I had to return to work.

I have managed to find 10 eggs, the last two are eluding my sim Mad I was also able to get the growfruit seed and fertilizer from Jasmine and return what was it 10? 20? growfruit (I can't remember) and get the first pot. Working on getting some more for her to get the next one.

Does anyone know when this challenge is scheduled to end?

Looked for an official date but did not see one. It started Tuesday 22nd March and supposed to be for a month. Four weeks would be the Tuesday 19th April and probably time for another patch.
My Sim (2 different saves I was already playing) found the 2 newest Eggs and all but one of the original Eggs. Seemed like it took dozens of duplicate finds before finally getting all twelve.
The Sims in these saves already had some perfect or near perfect plans. I grew the original Growfruit using the fertilizer then grafted that to the Perfect plant. Still took time but save a bit of time.
Thought I was smart to get 20 Perfect Growfruit. Then discovered needed 20 any quality PLUS one Perfect Growfruit to complete both stages of the challenge.

congrats  @noeddehaven!

I finally unlocked the 'golden' planter bowl. - $300 Simoleons - really? That's a lot of money, does the bowl do something special that would justify the high price?
Personally I think the green one looks much better.

Hello Smile I've already clarified this last week but I stated in another thread that rather than posting a no gif I would just post an excited gif  on Monday IF something was happening that week instead --meaning if I don't post a gif it means nothing is happening that week.

There is no news this week, and as @Cement guessed --we do have a patch next week as that will be the end of the Spring Challenge.

So no more Jasmine and the special fertilizer. Found that the fertilizer is nontransferable between Sims.

Hello Everyone! I’d first like to state that the only official SimGurus are those based in North America who are also members of the development / production / community team here at EARS. Any official statements regarding content for The Sims 4 will come directly from our offices here at EARS first.

Now that we have that out of the way, I’d like to give you something that is official and that I’ve been helping work on: On Tuesday, April 19, we will be providing you with a look at content to come to The Sims 4 in the next couple months. I will have more information for you about this then, but am excited for you to see what we have in store.

I finished the egg hunt with Prissy in the Rosebud Challenge. She -- finally -- evolved her growfruit tree and managed to harvest 20 fruit to give to Jasmine; who, in turn, "gave" Prissy the green gardening pot. IF I can manage.... with the time that is remaining.... to evolve the tree to grow perfect growfruit, then Jasmine will give Prissy the bedazzled gardening pot.

Trust me guys, it's hard!!! But I thought I had read - in the official blog, or somewhere in SimsVIP blog - that once the challenge is over, we **might** be able to still buy these pots by using the cheat to unlock them. But, don't quote me.
