The Dream Meanings of Fruits

January 27, 2024


Fruit is understood in a similar way to fruit – it is often associated with sexual needs, but is also a sign of richness of thought, success and happy turns in everyday life.


The type of fruit can play a major role in dreams. In general, fruit in a dream is a sign of the dreamer’s erotic-sexual needs. It depends on the condition of the fruit. If the fruit is fresh, ripe and appetizing, it symbolizes the dreamer’s zest for life, sexual enjoyment and self-confidence or the desire for it. However, if the fruit is rotten and inedible, this image expresses insecurity, deprivation and sexual disappointment.
