The plant that bears the Miracle Fruit is first seen as a small vine stemming from the ground, which is part of the Dreamstalk. Upon being approached by Kirby, it rapidly grows, then bears the fruit. The fruit itself is a pulsating elliptical crimson-colored berry with an inner turquoise and outer gold peel swirling around it, and a visible glowing indigo aura.
Miracle Fruits also play key roles in two boss fights in Triple Deluxe. Firstly, as Kirby is fighting Queen Sectonia in her second form, he is captured and presumably finished when Taranza and King Dedede come to his rescue and toss him a Miracle Fruit. Secondly, in The True Arena, it is shown that Queen Sectonia had managed to survive Kirby's final attack at the end of the Main Game and transformed into Soul of Sectonia by eating four Miracle Fruits in one last attempt to bring him down.
- According to an official Miiverse post, the Miracle Fruit was originally conceived as "Hypernova Candy", but was changed for the sake of tying it into the Dreamstalk instead.
- There is a real life fruit synsepalum dulcificum with a common name of "miracle fruit".
