“Oh, hey! Could you do me a favor and get up on top of this tank? There's a switch up there that I'd like you to jump on. It looks like a piece of fruit's jammed in the pipe.”
Pianta, Super Mario Sunshine

Yoshi's Fruit Adventure is the eighth episode of Ricco Harbor in Super Mario Sunshine. The episode's objective is to ride Yoshi to the far platforms south of the plaza. In order to complete this episode, the player must have first completed Episode 4 of Pinna Park and rescued Yoshi from Shadow Mario in Delfino Plaza.


The player must make their way to the plaza, where there is a large market taking place. Next to the market is a Yoshi egg asking for a durian, so the player has to Ground Pound the buttons on top of the fruit machine next to the market until they get the fruit. Kicking the durian to the Yoshi egg will have Yoshi pop out as a Purple Yoshi the player can ride.

To get to the episode's Shine Sprite, the player has to use Yoshi to cross over the water to the platforms past the helipad. If Yoshi ends up falling into the water, Yoshi will drown and the player has to start over. By spraying the Cheep-Cheeps jumping out of the water with Yoshi's juice, they will turn into horizontally moving platforms that will carry Mario and Yoshi closer to the platforms. Once the player reaches the first platform, they can either eat the coconut in the palm tree to the left or use Spin Jumps to reach the higher platforms. Eating the coconut will turn Yoshi into Pink Yoshi, and spraying the Cheep-Cheeps with now will result in vertically moving pink platforms. At the highest platform is a cage with an Orange Juice Generator that only Yoshi can destroy by spraying it. Ground Pounding the panel the shield was covering will flip Mario into the cage and he will be able to collect the Shine Sprite.
