Animal Crossing: City Folk Tips

Exotic Fruit
To get exotic fruit, send letters saying "plz send fruit" with cheap seashells attatched as gifts to all of your neighbors, and about 1/2 of them will send fruit, usually exotics. Plant fruits, tend them, and you will have orchards full of exotic fruit at 500 bells each instead of local fruit at 100 bells each. You will be able to make money very quickly
