Special Apples are introduced in the game as regular Apples that Huang tries to sell to you for 500 G apiece. He refers to them as AEPFE, HMSGB, and SUGDW Apples.
Later on, you can actually make these Special Apples in your kitchen.
However, you will need certain Special Apples to use as ingredients in the Special Apple recipes. Huang will visit your farm on the 4th of every season and offer his Special Apples as long as you meet the following requirements:
- It is between 6:00 AM and 12:00 PM
- The weather is not stormy
- You have 4 friendship notes (100 FP) with Huang
- You have more than 500 G in their wallet
- There is at least one available space in your Bag
Here’s everything you need to make AEPFE, HMSGB, and SUGDW Apples in your kitchen:

To make a Specialty Apple, you’ll need three Apples in total: one regular Apple and one each of the other Specialty Apples that Huang sells.
This means that if you want to make an AEPFE Apple, for example, you’ll need the other two (HMSGB and SUGDW Apples) to complete the recipe.

How To Sell Special Apples
Special Apples aren’t technically classified as a recipe dish, so you can ship them via the Shipping Bin like any regular item.
But you can also sell Special Apples to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.
To sell an item to Huang, speak to him in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.
But since Special Apples are regular items, you won’t be able to haggle the prices with Huang. He will offer you the same price that you would typically earn from shipping the item instead (49 G).
