The Reveal Lucky Fruit screen

A Lucky Fruit is a gameplay mechanic in Yoshi's Story. Before each playthrough in Story Mode and Trial Mode, a roulette with the four regular fruits (apples, bananas, watermelons, and grapes) appears onscreen. Pressing A Button or START Button slows down the roulette until it stops on a fruit. The selected fruit becomes the Lucky Fruit, which serves as the Baby Yoshi's "yummiest" fruit until the game is completed. The Lucky Fruit rewards the Yoshi with eight ♥s (versus three for the Favorite Fruit and 100 for melons) and recovers all of the petals on the Yoshi's Smile Meter, even if the selected Yoshi color does not like the fruit.

In each level, there are twelve of the selected Lucky Fruit to find, while there are six of each of the other three "ordinary" fruits. When a Yoshi does a ground pound in Super Happy mode, any Shy Guy onscreen is turned into the Lucky Fruit.
