The 10 Best Fall Crops in Stardew Valley

Is it Fall again in your game? Do you want to know how to maximize your profits and plant crops with the best yields during Fall? This list covers the best crops for this season in Stardew Valley and everything you need to know about each one of them.

Fall is a beautiful season in Stardew Valley.

The primary means of earning income in the game is through farming and selling the crops you’ve harvested. A crop is any plant that you grow from a seed. You can sell them for profit, consume them for health and energy restoration, or give them as a gift to the residents of Pelican Town.

Just like in real life, crops are seasonal in Stardew Valley. Certain crops can only be planted and grown during their designated season (28 days). The plants from the previous period wither and die on the first day of the next season. On the other hand, there are multi-season crops that grow no matter the time of year.

Top 10 Fall Crops

Fall is the third period you’ll play through, and it comes after Summer. There are a total of 14 plants you can grow during this time, but not all of them are equal. In this article, we’re ranking the top ten profitable crops that you should grow in Fall.

1. Pumpkin

The Pumpkin is a fall favorite.

A Pumpkin is a vegetable that we associate with Fall the most. It’s one of the three crops (alongside melon and cauliflower) in Stardew Valley that can grow into a Giant Crop. Three Pumpkin crops planted in a 3×3 pattern have a 1% chance to combine to make a Giant Crop, which drops 15 to 21 items when harvested.

It takes a Pumpkin 13 days to grow into maturity, but a Giant Crop won’t necessarily appear on the 13th day, as it can happen at any point.

You can purchase Pumpkin Seeds from the following:

  • Pierre’s Store (100g)
  • JojaMart (125g)

Although it isn’t meant to be eaten, the Pumpkin is used in several recipes and bundles at the Community Center.

One Pumpkin costs 320g, which is one of the highest base prices for plants in Stardew Valley. The price goes up depending on the quality and whether you have the Tiller Profession (+10%). See the table below for comparison.

The Sweet Gem Berry grows from Rare Seeds.

The Sweet Gem Berry is a crop with the highest value among the Fall crops. It sells for 3,000g at base quality and even higher if it’s silver, gold, or iridium quality. See the table below for comparison.

QualitySelling Price
A sweet gem berry has the highest profit of all fall crops.

However, we can’t officially include it in this list because it can’t be eaten (therefore, no healing effects), or used in a Keg or Preserves Jar to produce artisan goods. It doesn’t get the Tiller Profession bonus either.

Plus, it’s grown from a Rare Seed, which you can either purchase from the Traveling Cart for 1,000g or produce by placing a Sweet Gem Berry in a Seed Maker. It takes 24 days to grow a Sweet Gem Berry from a Rare Seed.
