What are the stardew parsnips?

First of all, what is this crop?

Stardew Valley describes Parsnips as a spring tuber closely related to the carrot. It has an earthy taste and is full of nutrients.

Your character can plant them outside during the Spring time. This is actually one of the first crops you will most likely start planting because you will get a gift from Mayor Lewis. The package will have 15 parsnip seed packets that will help you to learn more about crops in Stardew Valley. The very first profits are extremely important, so let’s take a look at how you can grow Stardew Parsnips and what profit you can get from this crop.

Stardew Parsnips: Selling price

The base selling price for this crop is 35 gold coins, but you can definitely get more money.

Firstly, if you have the Tiller profession then your selling prices will increase by 10%. Also, better quality crops will bring you a better profit. For example, Stardew Parsnips can vary between 35 and 70 gold coins (and that’s without the Tiller profession!).

You can also turn this into artisan items! For example, the base price for the juice is 78 gold coins and for the pickles it is 120 gold coins! This selling price can be increased by 40% if you have the Artisan profession.

Growing Stardew Parsnips

Let’s take a look at the whole process of growing Parsnips in Stardew Valley.

Buying Parsnip seeds in Stardew Valley

Firstly, you will get some of these seeds in the beginning of the game.

Other than that, Pierre’s General Store and the Night Market seem to be the best places to get yourself some Parsnip seeds for Stardew Valley. That’s where you can get the seeds for 20 gold coins. If you choose to buy from JojaMart, you will have to pay 25 gold coins for these seeds.

Of course, you can also buy from the Traveling Cart, but it will be much more expensive off-season. It might cost you anything between 100 and 1000 gold coins! Honestly, this is not a very good deal, so waiting for the right season might be the better choice.
