What is the stardew Valley starfruit?

Let’s start with the main things you need to know about this crop.

First of all, it is described as “An extremely juicy fruit that grows in hot, humid weather. Slightly sweet with a sour undertone.” Kind of sweet, right?

Well, this juicy fruit grows from the starfruit crop after 13 days. Did you know that this actually has the second highest selling price of any crop in Stardew Valley.

Just in case you were wondering, the sweet gem berry has the highest selling price.

Other than that, the starfruit can give you 43 of farming XP after being harvested, so you can improve your skills too. When it comes to other benefits, you can get between 125 and 325 energy points for eating the fruit. The exact amount depends on the quality of the Stardew Valley starfruit. It can also give between 56 and 146 health points. Again, depends on the quality.

If you are planning to sell the fruit, you can expect to get between 750 and 1500 gold coins. If you chose the Tiller profession, then your selling price will be higher (between 825 and 1650 gold coins). Not bad, right?

Of course, the situation is slightly different if you have the artisan profession. For example, if you are making a wine or jelly out of it, then you can make up to 3150 gold coins from this! This is definitely one of the best selling prices you can get in the game.

How to get the stardew starfruit?

If you are planning to grow the Stardew starfruit, you will need the seeds!

Sadly, they can’t just be bought from the General Store or JojaMart!

Pierre’s General StoreCan’t be bought there
Joja’s SupermarketCan’t be bought there

That’s right, you will have to go to the Oasis for that. Of course, sometimes you can get it from the traveling cart, but it’s hard to know when and it will be more expensive.

While this crop is harder to get in the game than other regular crops, it does have a great financial benefit, so it might be worth it to be patient and just go to the oasis!

How to use the starfruit?

Once you manage to get your hands on the Starfruit crop and successfully grow it, there are a few things you can do.

Let’s take a look at the best options:


First of all, quite a lot of NPCs will truly like the starfruit as a gift! Just for example, we are talking about Elliott, Harvey, Leah, Pam, Shane, and more characters.

Just don’t give it to Abigail, Haley, Jas, and Vincent, and you will be fine (they hate it)!


While you don’t need this crop for any recipes, it is needed to make a Junimo Hut! If you would like to finish this building, then you will need 20000 gold coins, 200 stone, 9 starfruit, and 100 of fiber. That’s quite a lot of resources, but it will be worth it.

The Junimo Hut will help you by harvesting crops around it, so you will save a lot of time in the game. Hey, time is money, right?


Did you know that you need this crop for one quest? That’s right!

We are talking about the Soldier’s Star quest where Kent will ask you for a starfruit. If you finish this task, you will get 500 gold coins and 1 friendship heart. If you are planning to work on your friendship with Kent, then this might be a perfect way to do that.
