You’re correct if you’ve thought the frost wouldn’t let you get any harvest. However, there are unique loots and sometimes chances to give you extra profit while most plants die. This way, your farm won’t be that inactive and lose the thriving possibility.

What’s known about C.F. is its value to Stardew Valley beginners during Year 1. It’s suitable for selling, consuming, or even as a collection. But we’ll talk about the item first and confirm its uses through this simple introductory guide.

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.

Selling Prices

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.
