If you’re out of ideas on what you should produce this Spring, you might consider cultivating a farm filled with strawberries. This luscious fruit helps increase your profit by just selling and making artisan goods with it.

To satisfy your interest in getting more gold, here’s a guide to help you develop one of the best crops in Stardew Valley!

What’s a Strawberry?

It’s a fruit crop that comes from Strawberry Seeds. Consuming it restores your health and energy, but the amount of restoration depends on your yield’s quality:

Silver Star+70+31
Gold Star+90+40
Iridium Star+130+58

How to Grow a Strawberry?

Producing it takes eight days, and once you harvest them, they regrow after four days. Unfortunately, it only gives a single fruit, but there’s a 2% chance for it to spawn more.

Additionally, you can add Speed-Gro (SG), Deluxe Speed-Gro (DSG), and Hyper Speed-Gro (HSG) to hasten its development process. It gets better if you pair these fertilizers with your Agriculturist Profession.

You can also alter the number of Strawberries by planting the crop on the right day. Here’s the quantity of fruits that you’ll gather and the days it’ll take to harvest them if you follow these dates:

Aside from following these schedules, you can get three Strawberries by planting them on Spring 13 and using a Speed-Gro. But you first need to finish the Spring Crop Bundle and visit the Community Center after the Egg Festival before cultivating it.
