In Stardew Valley, the greenhouse is a big help, but what are the best crops to grow in it to get the most out of it?
In Stardew Valley, you have to bring your grandfather’s farm back to life by growing crops, exploring caves, and getting to know your new neighbors in the valley with the same name. One of the best things about the game is how farming helps and expands every other part of it. It gives you money to spend and lets you unlock features that will help you keep your new life interesting.
Usually, you can only grow certain crops in each season, which limits how you farm depending on the time of year. However, once you unlock the greenhouse, you can grow any crop you want, no matter what season it is. You can use this to always make the most money from your farm.
The Ancient Fruit is one of the best crops to grow in the greenhouse because of its high price and ability to keep producing after its first harvest. This means that no matter how long the crop grows, it will always be a worry-free source of income that won’t die between seasons.
If you can put all your money into Ancient Fruit for your greenhouse, it would be a good idea. You’ll get more than 500 gold per fruit every seven days, and if you decide to make artisan goods from them, you’ll make even more. The Ancient Fruit is hard to grow because its seeds are hard to find. Don’t be afraid to focus on a different crop while you save up for your big payday.
Cranberries are a crop that grows back in five days and always gives you two berries when you pick them. When you pick cranberries from a plant, there’s also a chance that you’ll get more than you need.
Even though each cranberry is worth at least 75 gold, the amount of cranberries you can get from a single harvest makes up for this, making it one of the best crops in Tunnel Rush game. It’s also much easier to find cranberry seeds than it is to find seeds for some of the few crops that can make you more money.
Red cabbage is one of the few crops on this list that doesn’t keep making food after it’s been picked. It’s usually cheaper to have a plant that stays alive and keeps making money than to keep buying and replanting plants.
But since red cabbage makes a lot of money, can be used in a few great recipes, and can only be picked three times when in season, the greenhouse is a great place to get the most out of this crop all year long. Just the energy boost from the Red Plate dish is enough to make it worth growing red cabbage.
Mixed seeds might seem like an odd choice, since they aren’t as reliable for making money as planting crops that fit your play style. However, the fact that they are unpredictable is what makes them a good choice for the greenhouse.
If you plant mixed seeds outside during any season, they will grow a plant from a list of crops that are available during that season. However, if you plant mixed seeds in a greenhouse, plants can grow from any season’s list, so you can get a certain crop even if its seeds aren’t for sale at that time of year.
The blueberry plant is another crop that makes a lot of money because of how much it gives you per harvest. It gives you at least three blueberries every four days, so you can sell a lot of it even if the pay isn’t that great.
You have a better chance of getting at least one high-quality berry if you give up to three berries per harvest. Also, each blueberry can be made into a handmade item that can be sold to make more money or given as a gift that almost every NPC will like. If you want to have a lot of fruit all year long, you should move the blueberries into the greenhouse.
Corn doesn’t make as much money as berries, but it’s still a good crop to have around for cooking. Oil, which is an important part of many recipes, can be made from corn. Some of the recipes that call for oil actually give stat boosts and other effects that make it easier to go outside your farm.
The greenhouse will let you use these buffs outside of the summer and fall. This will give you more choices about how to spend any given day of the year. If you have a lot of oil, you can make great items for going into the mines, like Fried Mushroom, which increases your damage for the low cost of a common mushroom, a morel, and oil.
Fruit trees almost seem like they were made to be grown in a greenhouse, since they won’t produce fruit all year if they’re grown anywhere else. If you plant a fruit tree in the greenhouse, it will give you one fruit every day for a whole year. This is one of the most reliable and valuable ways to make money in the game.
Even better, one fruit a day means you’ll always have enough resources to make fruit-based artisan items like wine and jelly, which sell for more and make great gifts for almost every character in the game.
The cactus fruit isn’t just a crop that is worth more when grown in a greenhouse. It’s also the only way to grow cactus fruit anywhere other than the Calico Desert. Another crop that can be picked continuously is cactus fruit, which takes only three days to grow back after being picked.
Even though cactus fruit isn’t always the most valuable crop you can grow in your greenhouse, there are a few characters who like to receive it as a gift, and a number of quests will ask you to get some for gold and friendship points.
Strawberries are one of the best crops in Stardew Valley, but it can be hard to get their seeds and plant them. You can only buy strawberry seeds at the egg festival, which is late in the season when they can grow.
The greenhouse solves the big problem with strawberries and lets you take advantage of their high selling price and ability to grow back throughout the year. This is an alternative to cranberries and blueberries that just takes a little more planning to set up.
Triple-shot espressos can be sold for 450 gold each, so coffee beans can be used to make money. However, the real value of these beans is in the buffs that both coffee and triple-shot espressos give you.
You can move faster with these two drinks, which is useful no matter what season it is if you haven’t unlocked minecart travel or are trying to explore a hostile area. With more speed, you won’t have to worry about falling asleep on the way home, and you’ll be in bed in no time.
