You’ll be tasked with helping Colony 6 Reconstruction in Xenoblade Chronicles, which requires you to donate money and items to level up four categories. One of the first items you’ll need to track down is the Dark Grape. You need two Dark Grapes in Xenoblade Chronicles as part of the contributions to unlock Nature Level 1.
While Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition adds some conveniences that make the Colony 6 reconstruction less of a pain, it can still be challenging to find the items you need. Fortunately, we know the exact location of the Dark Grapes, so you’re not stuck wandering around looking for them.

There are two ways you can get Dark Grapes in Xenoblade Chronicles. You can either search for them in the wilderness or trade for them. The quickest way to get the two you need is to just buy them, but you can also quickly find them if you know where to look.
