Name Season Location Information

Apfelsige

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Apfelsige (フェリジーネ, ferijiine) is a summer fruit that can be used for sweets[1]. It is similar to a citrus fruit. Due to its similarity to a citrus fruit, Myne suggested using its peel for rinsham[1]. When squeezed it produces a pink fruit juice that can be drunk as a refreshing beverage without needing any additional ingredients or dilution with water[2].

Birne

Birne (ビルネ, birune) is a fruit that can be used to make pies[3].

Blenrus Fruit

Spring
Early Summer
Haldenzel Blenrus trees bear golden fruits that taste sweet and are rich in mana. They are high-quality ingredients for rejuvenation potions and have a very high value. People from Haldenzel are forbidden from sharing them with outsiders without the permission of the giebe[4].

Edile

Ehrenfest Central District Edile (エディル, ediru) is a type of fruit found in Ehrenfest that produces a sticky juice. Ediles are used in the papermaking process at the Rozemyne Workshop, where it serves as a base to create the tororo[5].
In winter, commoners use edile fruit juice to soak rags and block gaps in windows.

Fallold

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Fallold (コルデ, korude) is a normally sweet fruit that looks like a raspberry, but tastes different. It is sour when harvested too early in the season. It can be made into a drink by thinning its juice with water and optionally adding honey to make it sweeter[6].

Kran

Autumn Ehrenfest Central District Krans (クラン, kuran) are a sour fruit that can be cooked into jam[7].

Meryl

Summer
Autumn

Ehrenfest Central District Meryls (メリル, meriru) are an avocado-like fruit. Myne uses the vegetable oil to make rinsham, but it is commonly used to cook[8].

Parue

Winter Ehrenfest Central District Parue (パルゥ, paruu) is the fruit of a feyplant that grows from trees only in winter mornings. The tree is almost transparent, looking like it is made out of ice. They are gathered by melting the branch the fruit is attached to. Since parue trees magically smother any fire in their direct vicinity, this has to be done with body heat. Parue fruits are drained of their sweet juice, which is used as a drink and pressed for their oil to be used for cooking. The dry remnants are then used as animal feed[9].
Myne discovers that this parue pulp resembles okara (soy pulp) and can be used as a base for various recipes, including parue cakes and parue-burgers[9].
Parue Oil also has characteristics that make it well suited for mixing coloured plant-paper ink, but it only being obtainable in very small amounts under specific weather conditions in winter makes it a less than ideal option for mass production[10].

Pome

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Pome (ポメ, pome) are a fruit that look like yellow bell peppers, but taste like tomatoes. Myne uses them in many of her recipes[11].

Prehre

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Prehre (ブラーレ, buraare) are peach-like fruits[12]. They come into season shortly after rutrebs and can be used as an ingredient in rumtopf[13].

Prunbeer

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Prunbeers (プヒュル, puhyuru) are fruits that come into season shortly after rutrebs and can be used as an ingredient in rumtopf[13].

Rafel

Autumn Ehrenfest Central District Rafel (ラッフェル, rafferu) is an autumn fruit that grows on trees. It looks similar to a ranshel, but is more sour and chewy[14]. Cut rafels dipped in honey are a winter dessert. Rafels symbolize romantic love[15][16].

Ranshel

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Ranshel (ランシェル, ransheru) are fruits that are tasty and easy to eat. They have a core which is normally not eaten[17].

Rio

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Rio (リオ, rio) is a fruit from Central Ehrenfest that produces oil[18]. Rio oil can be used as an ingredient for rinsham and in making ink.

Rutreb

Summer Ehrenfest Central District Rutrebs (ルトレーベ, rutoreebe) are a summer fruit loved by shumils. It has red juice and resembles strawberries[17].

Taue

Spring
Summer
Autumn
Ehrenfest Central District Taue (タウ, tau) are tasteless, water-filled red fruit that grow from spring until autumn. They are at their largest size at the height of summer, at which time commoners in Ehrenfest collect them for the Star Festival. The friends and neighbors of the married couples throw taue at the newlyweds as they leave the temple[19].
Myne discovers that taue can germinate into the feyplant trombe when exposed to mana. The pomegranate-like fruit develops a rough texture, then suddenly explodes and scatters its seeds in a small radius. Seeds that land in soil immediately start to sprout as trombes[20]. Myne secretly uses this method to get material for trombe paper and to drain mana from Dirk to treat his Devouring[21].

Trauperle

Autumn Illgner Trauperle (トラオペルレ, toraoperure) is a white fruit that grows in Illgner. Too bitter to serve as food, its sticky juice is used as glue by the locals[22]. It grows at the start of autumn[23].

It is also used as a component in specialized kinds of plant paper produced by the Rozemyne Workshop. Trauperle paper is unusually silky smooth and dries in less than two bells time. It keeps its shape very well when bent, making it ideally suited for making playing cards.

Viorebe

Ehrenfest Central District Viorebes are a sour fruit that can be made into jam. The jam is often eaten with honey[24].

Walnut
