What is a Crystal Fruit
Despite all the heavy snow on Stardew Valley, you’ll see this foraged fruit popping out. It’s attractive both to the eyes and mouths of some villagers, and there’s a reason why:
How to Find a Crystal Fruit
In general, you can find this item by regular foraging during Winter. However, you can still get them through these:
- Killing Dust Sprites – Strictly to floors 40 – 80 only (2%)
- Wild Seeds (Wi) – Planting this seed in front of the Farmhouse or Greenhouse and waiting for seven days.
For beginners, your best choice is venturing below the ground and wearing Lucky Rings and other luck buffs to get drops. However, it’s also practical to harvest every Winter forage first and craft it into a Wild Seed (10x) at Level 7 Foraging.
Since this forage is still a fruit, you can turn it into Alcohol and Jam with Kegs and Preserves Jar with the Artisan profession. Moreover, you can age its Wine with Casks.
|Normal with Artisan||490g||630g|
|Silver with Artisan||786g|
|Gold with Artisan||945g|
|Iridium with Artisan||1260g|
It’s close to a Fiddlehead Fern’s properties but without the Tiller profession.
You can use C.F. to craft one item:
|Wild Seeds (Wi)||Level 7 Foraging||• Crocus (1)|
• C.F. (1)
• Snow Yam (1)
• Winter Root (1)
A piece of cloth with a single Crystal Fruit in the spool of the Sewing Machine will give you a Shirt. Its blue color is perfect for dyeing in the Dye Pots.
Everyone would appreciate this small gift except Abigail, Haley, Jas, Maru, and Vincent.
C.F. is used in the following quests:
- Help Wanted at Pierre’s General Store. Anyone from the town may request it for 450g and 150 Friendship points during the season.
- Ice Pip (Fish Pond). One will be needed to increase the pond’s capacity from five to seven.
