New content is always wanted, no matter what it is, right? By popular demand, bananas are coming to Stardew Valley!

While the tropical fruit is joining by popular demand, it didn’t exactly take a clean sweep of the vote. ConcernedApe, the developer of the title, took to Twitter to ask what the next fruit fans would like to see added to the title was. By a narrow margin, bananas managed to take first place.

In second, mango trees took 29.3% of the vote. Avocados came in a close third with 26.5%, while passionfruit remained pretty low down in a far fourth at 13.6%.

Many players were quick to point out the most grievous of all sins – Passionfruit grows on a vine. Considering it was adding a fruit tree, how could the developers be so careless? But then again, bananas apparently don’t either, and we all know that you have to have complete accuracy in your farming sims. Hopefully, we’ll be able to forgive ConcernedApe for this in due time. If it’s any consolation, though, this fan poll is what taught the developer that as well.

Of course, ConcernedApe has plenty on his plate at the moment. Stardew Valley has become one of the most popular indie games in recent time, rivaling games like Undertale in indie popularity. It’s been ported onto major platforms and is one of the most popular games on Steam in any given day.

On top of that, the developer has some more games on the way as well. Back in February, the developer discussed working on a few new projects.

“One takes place in the world of Stardew Valley, but is not a farming game,” he stated on Twitter. “The other, I’m not 100% sure about the world yet, but it will tie into Stardew Valley in some way.”

Point is, he has his hands full, so more free updates on Stardew Valley might not be the first thing on the list of priorities at the moment. Which means, unfortunately, it might be a while before we see the high-demand bananas hitting our Stardew Valley farms.

ConcernedApe was also quick to point out back in February that audiences shouldn’t be hyped over his new projects, though. He asked the audience not to get too excited, saying that he’d like “to just make whatever game comes naturally to me without too much pressure or expectation.”

That might be a hard wish to fulfill. Stardew Valley has been wildly popular, and anything that comes out with the developer’s name on it is naturally going to get a lot of attention.
