The meaning of fruit in dream | Dream Interpretation
(1) Fruit may symbolize something that is offering you refreshment or new life, new kinds of fulfilment.
(2) As the product of a process of development, fruit may symbolize your true self, the product of a process of integrating into your consciousness more and more of the contents of your unconscious. In the dream, are you reaching out for this fruit?
(3) Some fruits, by virtue of their shape or juiciness, may symbolize male or female genitals - for example, a fig (male or female genitals) or banana (penis). Eating such fruits may symbolize sexual pleasure. See also Eating, section (1).
Fruit in general may represent symbolically the fruits of your labor. As sweet nectar it may signify fulfillment and the sweetness of life.
A basket of fruit may be preserted as a gift of fulfillment of a wish.
You see ripe fruits on a tree: your children will have a prosperous future
Symbolic of God’s blessing upon the earth and Christ’s love for His bride, Song. 2:3, Gen. 1:11. Fruit in a dream can also mean results.
If the fruit is rotten or spoiled in a dream it symbolizes abandonment, curses, and people of bad character, Jer. 24:1-10.
The bounty of life on earth is expressed by all of the various edibles that Mother Nature has created for us.
The sweetness of fruit connects to the sweetness of life.
If you are dreaming of fruit of any kind, you are expressing a desire for life to feel abundant and prosperous. There is a cycle of ripeness associated with fruit that indicates a specific moment at which it is advantageous to benefit from a project, idea, or vision that may be at hand.
If you wait too long to act, the fruits of your labor may be lost.
Dreaming of ripe, appealing fruit in your dream is a very positive omen, and can symbolize several things: success and prosperity (the fruits of your labor); a pregnancy (fruit of the womb) or a heightened period of creativity (the fruits of your imagination.)
If the fruit is sour, rotten, or spoiled, however, it is a sign that something you’re striving for is going to turn bad - and it’s best if you stop work on it right now, figure out what’s wrong with it, and move on only once the problem is resolved.
Almost inevitably fruit suggests creativity and a natural growth process towards the spiritual.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Psychologically, when we have worked hard we ought to be able to recognize the fruits of our labour.
Dreaming of fruit in this way indicates that we have succeeded in what we set out to do.
Material aspects: To dream of fruit, particularly in a bowl, very often indicates the culmination of actions that we have taken in the past. We have been able to ‘harvest’ the past and to make a new beginning for ourselves. Unripe fruit suggests that a plan or project has not yet reached a point where it can be used. Rotting fruit suggests that we have missed an opportunity.
Fruits are complex symbols, representing everything from transcendence, to the self, to abundance, to spiritual knowledge. (See entries on particular fruits for more information.) The dreaming mind often literalizes common verbal expressions in an effort to convey something to the conscious mind, so fruit dreams can also indicate anything along the lines of “first fruits,” “forbidden fruit,” “fruitcake,” and so on.
Symbol: Dreaming about fruit is usually a sign that new plans are in the making.
Vision: Eating fruit: your hopes of finding love are going to be fulfilled. Eating sweet fruit: a project is going well. Eating bitter or sour fruit: expect problems to affect a certain matter. Rotten fruit: your love relationship leaves you dissatisfied. Seeing many different kinds of fruit: an argument will be resolved to your satisfaction. Looking at a display of fruit in a grocery store: attractive business transactions are in the making. Offering or selling fruit: you are trying hard to win someone s approval. Picking fruit always indicates positive changes in relationships. Picking fruit off the ground: small efforts will bring great rewards. Holding a fruit basket: you are afraid your partner will reject you.
Depth Psychology: Dreams about fruit are often about sexual needs and are a good sign for new plans and romantic relationships. They also indicate rewards for past efforts. Rotten fruit, on the other hand, always means adversity.
Cultivated fruit, such as and orange, is a lucky omen and promises a period of growth followed by fruition (financial gain) if it is ripe. Green fruit denotes that you will work harder, and longer then others, and may not attain to the goals that you have set for yourself unless you make some changes.
(Dried fruits; Fresh fruits) In a dream, a sweet tasting fruit represents blessings, knowledge or money. Even a sour tasting fruit means the same when it suits the taste of the person eating it in his dream. When a sour tasting fruit does not agree with the person’s taste in the dream, then it means unlawful earnings or aggravation of his illness.

Grapes in a dream represent wine, and water melon represents the alcoholic beverage which is fermented from its juices.
To pick up a fruit that fell from a tree in a dream means leading a fight against a righteous person.
If one sees a tree that bears fruit in warm weather bearing fruit in the winter in a dream, it means that he will associate with someone expecting to make a business deal, though their friendship will end in wasting time and money.
To pluck a fruit from a tree other than its own in a dream represents a good brother in-law, an honest partner, or a profitable partnership. Wild berries in the mountains or prairies in a dream represent innate arts, abilities and knowledge given directly from God Almighty and no other teacher has a claim in it. Figs in a dream represent the best of fruits in a dream. Fresh fruits in a dream signify money that does not last, while dried fruits represent savings.
