@UneSimmerYes, I'm having the same problem. I'm able to water, fertilize and even evolve the trees but they are not fruiting when in season anymore since the patch. I've played for 3-4 Sim days (about 84 hours) and nothing. Other in season plants that give vegetables and herbs, and flowers, are producing as expected each day.

 

I also do not play with any CC or mods.

Asked around a bit as I currently don't have time to test myself and it seems to work fine for other people. Also think there would be more reports on this if it was a general issue.

Can you test if you have the same issue on newly planted plant ? Is it all plants or only certain ones ?

Same problem. I am on the 64X64 island lot in Windenburg and the trees on my lot as well as the ones around the island will not grow fruit. I am 10 days on my money tree and nothing. Plants seem to work but not trees.

 

Edit:

 

Update.... I used testing cheats to shift click and edit the state of the tree. STILL no fruit.

 

Update to the update. Re-installation of the game. Still no fruit. I should note that I am on a PC not a Mac like OP.

 

3rd Update: Moved to Large Sulani lot and no change. Also... I noticed the pineapple in Sulani doesn't produce fruit either.

 

(Thanks Atic for letting me know I could edit these)

I haven't previously had this issue but since the last update I have.  I did the same tests Maxwell did, was this ever solved?

I have no harvest option on any of my items I plant; flowers, fruits, vegetables, herbs, catnips, magical plants, They don’t even produce any harvestables. This is on 3 different lots in 3 different town, with 4 different sims. The plants eventually die. I can initially water them and I can fertilize them repeatedly. They never get weeds or need to be watered again. They all look beautiful then are dead. This has been since the update. One of my sims is a level 10 gardener and all 4 sims have different aspirations and careers. I can harvest wild plants.

 

Playing on PS4. I never use any cheats. Obviously I have no CC.

EA Sims Team

Sul Sul everyone! 

 

Our team is currently investigating this issue and we were wondering if your plants produce fruits once your Sim travels to a different lot and returns?
Another player called this out in a separate report here:
https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Plants-not-harvestable-without-leaving-lot/m-p/10057256)

@gemaolao would you mind giving that a try and let us know?

Thanks so much and Happy Simming!

Hi!

I play on Ps4 and thave ried this right now.

None of my plants were producing or had any weeds or problems, they stayed like that for a whole sim week.

I tried going somewhere else and as soon as I came back to the lot all plants had weeds and needed care. After that, at 5:00am, all plants produced.

Despite that, plants from special locations don't seem to work properly. Only flowers would produce at those, at least in my game.

I don’t know if that will work because I did something else. I saved and went back to playing another household in the same save and the gardens were producing again when I came back to this household. Then I moved the characters from the other two households that weren’t working into the main household after they were working again. I moved them with keeping all the household items and then placed all the plants from those into the main household and they were all producing again and the dead ones were no longer dead.

 

Hope that all makes sense!
