The mutfruit is a consumable in Fallout 4.

Background[edit | edit source]

The mutfruit is a cultivated product used as both a food and an ingredient in other foods as well as medicine.[1] 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.[2]

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

A small mauve fruit, the mutfruit restores 10 hit points at the cost of 2 rads. It is also a component in the Dirty Wastelander cocktail and vegetable starch. Mutfruit is also the most efficient crop for settlements, since it produces 1 food per plant instead of 0.5 like every other crop.

Locations[edit | edit source]

  • Mutfruits can often be found growing in patches at settlements across the Commonwealth and can also be regularly bought from vendors.
  • Mutfruits and other plants can be found in Graygarden.
  • Mutfruit is being grown and can be picked in the farms near the back end of Diamond City.

  2. 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."
