The Citrus Lump (ツラノカワ?, lit.: "Surface Skin") is a treasure in Pikmin 2 and a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is actually a mandarin orange or a tangerine. It is found on the first sublevel of the Emergence Cave, and can easily be brought to the ship's pod without a hassle. It reappears many times throughout Pikmin 3 as well, on the Garden of Hope, the Distant Tundra and the Twilight River. It also appears in Challenge Mode, Mission Mode and Bingo Battle.

The Citrus Lump is one of the first treasures seen in the game. It is on the first sublevel of the Emergence cave, and can easily be brought to the ship's pod without any trouble, as it isn't usually located in the more forward portion of the cave where a group of four Snow Bulborbs are located.

Collecting the fruit[edit]

Garden of Hope[edit]

The Citrus Lump in the Garden of Hope can only be accessed once Louie has escaped. In the second half of the area, go into the water and lift the bamboo gate. There will be many Puckering Blinnows along the way, so make sure to bring plenty of Blue Pikmin. Beyond the bamboo gate, to the right, lays a small path, and the Citrus Lump is at the end. To carry it back, the tin box near the Waddlepus and the Burgeoning Spiderwort must have been dropped into the water.

Distant Tundra (cave)[edit]

The first Citrus Lump can be found in the cavern with the Pyroclasmic Slooches. In the room, the lights must have been turned on. Afterwards, throw a leader up onto the higher Bloominous Stemple along with a few Pikmin. Proceed to carry the fruit back, but watch out for enemies on the way back.

Distant Tundra (outside)[edit]

It is recommended that the second Citrus Lump in the area is obtained after Charlie has been rescued. Throw two leaders onto the area with the Dodge Whistle. To the far right of the cliff is a Bouncy Mushroom. Throw one leader onto the mushroom and some Yellow Pikmin onto the mushroom. They will arrive on a high risen area, and the Citrus Lump is buried on that section. There are two Bearded Amprats that guard the fruit. Kill the Amprats and the Arctic Cannon Larva and build the stack of hay, and proceed to carry the fruit back. It helps if the electric gate near base is demolished. If Charlie has not been rescued, Pikmin alone can be thrown across the Bouncy Mushrooms and will notice the fruit as soon as they land. After digging it up, they can usually make it past the enemies unharmed and carry it back to the ship.

Twilight River[edit]

The Citrus Lump in the Twilight River requires Blue Pikmin. The fruit is in the river near the two Dwarf Orange Bulborbs. From that area, go right near the small waterfall, and the Citrus Lump will be seen. Simply put a few Pikmin on it to carry it back to the S.S. Drake.


Olimar's journal

This fruit was dug up from the floor of an icy cavern. It appears that the fruit's thick skin protected it from the frigid cold... It's quite remarkable. The shape of the fruit eerily resembles the president's head. PS: The labyrinthine underground entrails of this planet are like a completely different world.

Sales pitch

The thick, acidic rind of this item is proof positive of its highly elevated mental functions. When I assess it, I am somehow reminded of a particularly hateful superior. Hurry up and devour it!

Brittany's notes

US version US version
Sweet and totally delicious, this one has quite a bit of Piktamin U. On closer analysis, the white fiber just inside the skin seems to have most of the nutrition, but it's not very tasty. I'll save it for the captain...
European version European version
Sweet, succulent and stuffed with Piktamin U! The white fibre on the underside of the peel abounds with nutrients, but it's pretty yucky to eat. A little treat for the Captain, perhaps?

The thick peel of this mysterious fruit shows how hardy it is. That's right, eat up!
