Mutfruit is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.
The mutfruit is a cultivated product used as both a food and an ingredient in other foods as well as medicine. Its restorative properties originate from a particular sugar compound that stimulates platelet production, which increases the rate at which wounds heal. However, when grown in the wild it becomes irradiated and develops natural toxins to ward off pests. In 2287, Curie cultivated "strain 17," a new variety genetically bred in sterile conditions to remove both the radiation and toxins. Its pure sugar offered such promise that it was used in her new stimpak.
Mutfruit provides both hydration and sustenance, and provides them at moderately higher levels than other fruits such as fresh apples or fresh pears. This makes it one of the more nutritious fruits.
Mutfruit can also be utilized as an ingredient for the super stimpak and Cass's moonshine.

- Mutfruit appears in the item tables for most merchants, so any merchant that is capable of selling food items can, at any point, have an unspecified number of mutfruit in their shop inventory. There is a higher chance of finding them when shopping with traders who deal specifically in food items.

- ↑ The Sole Survivor: "You're excited. What is it?"
Curie: "I am elated. Giddy. I begged to become a synth for a reason. For science. To be able to make real progress in studying the medical arts. I have had a breakthrough. Using a new strain of mutfruit, I have discovered a way to greatly improve the restorative properties of stimpaks. I realize this is not earthshaking, but it means that inspiration does exist."
The Sole Survivor: "How did you discover that?"
Curie: "Mutafruit has a particular sugar compound that stimulates platelet production and can close wounds. Unfortunately, the plant, when grown in the wild, is irradiated and develops natural toxins to ward off pests. Strain 17 has been genetically bred in sterile conditions to remove both problems. The new, pure sugar is already offering promise."
