A nectar egg (known before Pikmin 3 as simply egg) is a white, semi-round object found in alcoves of caves, and on specific places aboveground. It is unknown if they come from any kind of creature or plant and it may be possible that they are merely egg-shaped containers. They can be attacked, and when broken, they release nectar, although they can also release other things. The eggs held by Honeywisps in Pikmin 2 function identically to grounded eggs.

To destroy an egg, it must be attacked with Pikmin, punched at a few times with a leader, or destroyed by an enemy projectile, like a Gatling Groink's fireworks.

For Pikmin 2, it is advisable to throw a Purple Pikmin onto an egg, as this will immediately break it and contained Mitites will be instantly defeated. It is also recommended to destroy an egg with a leader, as a Pikmin thrown at the egg may drink the nectar after being called back, wasting it.

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 2.
Particularly: Discover what the chances are for when the player doesn't have a certain spray.

In Pikmin 2, the contents of an egg are picked at random from a list, and they're only chosen on the exact moment the egg breaks, not when the egg is created (i.e. they're not chosen when the area or cave loads). Not every outcome has the same probability of happening, as detailed in the following table:

Content Probability
A single drop of nectar 50%
Two drops of nectar 35%
A drop of ultra-bitter spray 5%
A drop of ultra-spicy spray 5%
A group of ten Mitites 5%

In Pikmin 3, certain eggs are programmed to always drop certain objects. For example, some of the eggs in the hollowed-out tree in the Tropical Wilds where the Juicy Gaggle is found are pre-programmed to always drop bomb rocks – the only known ones to do so. Other than that, some eggs in Mission Mode always drop ultra-spicy spray. Most eggs in Story mode can drop either nectar or ultra-spicy spray. If ultra-spicy spray has not been discovered, they will only drop nectar, as ultra-bitter spray and Mitites are not present in this game.

Suggestions: Complete the Pikmin 3 list, and add cave, challenge mode and battle mode locations.

There are no nectar eggs in the first game, but they can be found in many places in Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 3. Their location in areas is always constant, and they always respawn whenever the area is entered. Underground, there are several sublevels with eggs, some having more than one. Eggs that fall off the ceiling of caves will instantly break when they reach the ground.

The following is a list of the eggs' locations:
