The Juicy Gaggle (キーチゴノミ?, lit.: "Raspberry") is a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is a raspberry. These fruits produce only half a bottle of juice (a quarter in Ultra-Spicy mode), identical to a Cupid's Grenade, but are often found in groups. There are four of them total in Pikmin 3's story mode, but are more common in Mission Mode, appearing many times despite only being worth 20 Pokos.
Collecting the fruit
In the Twilight River, a group of three Juicy Gaggles are behind a body of water in a cave containing three Water Dumples and a blue 10 pellet. As such, it is recommended to bring Blue Pikmin. While Winged Pikmin can collect the fruit too, this is risky because there is an Arachnode above the entrance to the area with the fruits and can be hard to see due to the cave's darkness. If Winged Pikmin are used, the Arachnode must be killed or the Winged Pikmin will get stuck in its web and drop the fruit, but Blue Pikmin will walk under the web and won't get stuck at all. Bomb rocks can also be used to kill the Arachnode. This is the only place in Story Mode where multiple of the same type of fruit are found next to each other, which makes these fruits effectively function as a single fruit with 3 parts.
In the Tropical Wilds, a Juicy Gaggle is inside a Medusal Slurker which is hidden inside a tree stump, accessible via seesaw blocks. Have one leader go on the northern platform, and throw some Pikmin to the ledge the seesaw block rises up to. Then throw at least two Yellow Pikmin on the Bouncy Mushroom using a different leader. Switch to the now raised leader, and have them take at least one Pikmin to destroy the Spotcaps blocking the path to a hole in the tree stump, and then jump in the hole. Then proceed to defeat the Medusal Slurker. It is recommended to bring Rock Pikmin, as they can defeat it quickly.
“Finally! Something on this planet that isn't gigantic! These little red globes are the perfect size for Koppaite hands, and the juice inside makes a good meal. I bet these'll be a lunch-box favorite back home.”
