Welcome to our post on the Stardew Valley Super Cucumber!
A rare, purple variety of sea cucumber.
A super cucumber is a type of fish that is obtainable through Fishing. It is a purple marine animal with dark-colored spines protruding from it. Super cucumbers have a large range in size, being anywhere from 12 to 37 inches.
Though it’s not a Legendary Fish, super cucumbers are one of the more difficult fishes to find and catch. It even has time and seasonal restrictions like legendary fish.
Where to find a super cucumber
Super Cucumbers can be caught in two different locations: at the beach, on Ginger Island.
To catch super cucumbers at the beach, it has to be during the summer and fall evenings (6PM to 2AM). The beach is located directly to the south of Pelican Town, across the stone bridge. The only specification that doesn’t affect your ability to reel in a super cucumber is the weather. It can be caught during any weather pattern.
The only way to catch a super cucumber outside of these seasons at the beach is through the use of magic bait or there is a 4% chance to catch one during the Night Market festival. This event takes place between the 15th and 17th of winter and during this time you can take a deep-sea submarine ride and have a chance of catching a super cucumber.
To catch super cucumbers on Ginger Island, you have to fish to the southeast, south, west, and in Pirate Cove. To access Ginger Island, you have to repair the boat in the backroom of Willy’s Fish Shop.
There are more ways to obtain a super cucumber than just through fishing though. You can find them inside garbage cans throughout Pelican Town during summer and fall. They can also be bought at the Traveling Cart for 750-1,250 gold each.
The last way to get a super cucumber is through the Statue of Endless Fortune. One day a year, Winter 17 or the Wizard’s birthday, the statue will produce one super cucumber that you can collect.
How to catch a super cucumber
Since super cucumbers are difficult to find, it’s a good idea to maximize your chances of successfully reeling them in the first time around. To do this, you should use the Iridium fishing pole, bait, and trap bobbers.
What to do with a super cucumber
Super cucumbers are not used in any bundles, and only one villager loves getting it as a gift (the Wizard). Demetrius, Elliot, Leo, Linus, Pam, Sebastian, and Willy are all neutral to receiving a super cucumber as a gift. Meanwhile, everyone else either dislikes it or hates it.
There is a chance of super cucumbers being requested during the summer or fall seasons on the Help Wanted board. This board is located on the front of Pierre’s General Store, next to the calendar. Completing this request gives 750 gold and 150 friendship points.
It can be sold at a base price of 250g, 312g for the silver quality, and 375g for the gold quality. When consumed, you will receive a boost of 125 energy, and 56 health.
It can be crafted into three basic recipes: Maki Roll, Quality Fertilizer, and Sashimi. Though, all of these recipes can be crafted using any fish in the game; and both Sashimi and Maki Rolls sell for significantly less than the cost of just the actual fish.
Super cucumbers are also used in making the tube top with the sewing machine, and as purple dye in the dye pots inside Emily and Haley’s house.
One profitable, long-term thing to do with super cucumbers are to place them in a fish pond. This is because they produce several profitable items depending on the capacity of the farm. It starts out with roe at a population of 1, and iridium ore and amethyst at a population of 9.
Super cucumbers are incredibly special fish in Stardew Valley as they have a secret use beyond just selling, crafting, and farming though. If you take a single super cucumber to the fenced-in area directly north of the Blacksmith’s, there’s a hole in the fence where you can access a brown magic crate. If you place the super cucumber into the box, you will receive a ??HMTGF?? statue. This statue is a secret piece of furniture that cannot be resold, only displayed as a piece of artwork.
