Detonated Fruit Gems will extend Bomb and Doom Gem counters by 10.
The PC README document of Bejeweled Twist incorrectly mentions that Fruit Gems are also capable of replacing a Doom Gem when earned.
The Fruit Gem is the only type of gem in Bejeweled Twist in which a unique notification does not appear when the gem is seen for the first time. However, it is possible to make the notification appear in the game as normal by modifying a certain document that is located inside the game files.
If there are multiple bomb gems, the Fruit Gem will replace the one with the lowest number.
In the PC version of Bejeweled Twist, Fruit Gems will have sparkles appearing from the center of it.
This feature doesn't exist in the online version, however.
