The Sims 3 Plasma Fruit for Vampires

To acquire this gnome without using a cheat, you will need to grow plasma fruit on your property. The Sims 3 plasma fruit is obtained when your Sim first becomes a vampire. You can also purchase it at the grocery store. To plant the bloody fruit, you just need it in your inventory and to have The Sims 3 gardening skill at level 7 to plant it.
