How to Harvest Phase Lemons in Slime Rancher

Phase lemons are said to be from another time or place entirely, so it's no wonder they're tricky to harvest. But once you know the trick, it's really easy.

When playing Slime Rancher, Phase Lemons can be tricky little suckers to find and harvest. They are said to be from a different time (or even a different reality) than our own. As such, Phase Lemon Trees often appear and disappear seemingly randomly. 

This is a pretty big frustration for players who are trying to collect them. But with the tips in this guide, you'll be well on your way to having more Phase Lemons than you know what to do with. 

Where are Phase Lemons Found in Slime Rancher?

To find Phase Lemons, you will need to travel to the Ancient Ruins. To access the Ancient Ruins, you will need a plort from the following 6 slimes: 

  1. Tabbies
  2. Phosphors
  3. Rocks
  4. Honeys
  5. Booms
  6. Rads

If you don’t know where the Ancient Ruins are, then head toward either the Indigo Quarry or Moss Blanket Island. You can get to the Ruins from either of those locations. 


Phase Lemon trees pop up in all sorts of places across the Ancient Ruins, and never stay in one place for very long.

Getting the phase lemons, however, is relatively simple. Find a Phase Lemon tree that’s ripe with visible, yet translucent, lemons on the tree and shoot a fruit at it. You can also then use a Phase Lemon to plant your own Phase Lemon tree.
