A Heart Fruit is a type of fruit in Yoshi's Story. Heart Fruits can be found in bubbles; alternatively, when a Yoshi eats six of the same fruit in a row, a Heart Fruit appears from the sky and slowly floats down. When obtained, the Heart Fruit makes a Yoshi Super Happy. In that form, he is invincible and stronger and sometimes reveals some extra coins in the level within the time limit. While Super Happy, a Yoshi is given an endless supply of eggs, a longer tongue, and extra flutter-jumping, with both the Black and White Yoshis being able to move faster horizontally. When a Yoshi ground-pounds while Super Happy, all onscreen bubbles pop, Shy Guys turn into fruits, and peppers turn into coins. When a Yoshi transforms, his health is filled completely.

In one of the areas in the level Poochy & Nippy, eating this fruit can cause the snowflakes to fall endlessly.
