Growth and harvest

Generation VI

A Maranga Berry will mature from a planted seed to a full-grown, fruit-bearing tree in 96 hours, with 16 hours per stage. A Maranga tree will yield 1-10 Berries. During its growth, watering the plant will add 0.2 Berries to the final harvest, weeding it will add 0.1, and removing a pest will add 1.



A Maranga Berry, when held by a Pokémon, will increase their Special Defense by one stage the first time they are struck by a special move. It is consumed once used.

Juice Shoppe

If blended with a Kee Berry at the Lumiose Juice Shoppe, it will become Perilous Soup, resetting the drinker's EVs to 0.


The Maranga Berry has an additional effect in the growing of Berries. When used to make Mulch, it produces Amaze Mulch, which combines the effects of Boost Mulch, Rich Mulch, and Surprise Mulch, greatly improving the yield of Berries and chance for mutations.
