Spring is the time for flowers and profitable yields in Stardew Valley. Best suited for Spring are Strawberries.

Best Summer Crops

Blueberry Crops

Stardew Valley’s Summer is in, and the heat is on! And profitable yields are abundant!

The first crop we have is the Blueberry. Purchasable in Pierre’s shop, these are Summer’s equivalent to Strawberries – able to yield multiple per harvest!. Although it takes 13 days instead of eight days to harvest, the regrowth period is still the same. If you want to complete the Summer Crops Bundle, make sure to save one of these.  

As you can notice, this guide shows that the most profitable crops are multi-harvest crops. And as a teaser, Fall has a plant like this too!

Up next is the Coffee Bean. Available only in the Traveling Cart with a 25% chance to show up, you may need some luck. But if you snag a seed, expect to make a hefty profit.  

Coffee Beans are one of Stardew Valley’s multi-seasonal crops, which means you can plant them in Spring and Summer. Partnered with multiple beans that can be harvested per tree, the possibility of it filling your farm is exponential.

Starfruit Crops

Starfruit is the best crop to invest in Summer for players in Stardew Valley’s mid to late game. Obtainable through the desert Oasis, the potential profit for each seed is double the initial investment. Although not recommended in the early game, investing in this crop in later stages is worth every gold spent on each seed.   

Starfruits can give you two harvests in a season. Although a single harvest crop, they are the most profitable for Summer in terms of a single yield. 

Crop stats are as follows:

Maturity   Regrowth Buying Price 
13 Days N/A 400g

Best Fall Crops

Cranberry Crops

Stardew Valley’s Fall is a season of falling leaves and cold breezes, but that doesn’t mean our efforts will fall too! 

As teased earlier, Cranberries are the equivalent of Spring and Summer’s berries. You can harvest this crop within seven days (the fastest of the three berries). Although quicker in the initial harvest, it does have the downside of regrowing a little slower. You can purchase seeds from Pierre’s shop for the lowest price. 

The stats for the crop are as follows: 

Maturity   Regrowth Buying Price 
7 Days 5 Days 240g 

Refer to the Selling Prices below:

Gold 112g 123g 
Iridium 150g 165g

Pumpkin Crops

Pumpkin is one of the Fall season’s many staple crops. Planting these alongside Cranberries is a guaranteed moneymaker. Investing in these early is a must because of the possibility of having two harvests. Want to grow them? Pierre’s General Store offers the most affordable seed across Stardew Valley!

If you wish to complete the Fall Crops Bundle, save a Pumpkin. And if it’s of Gold quality, keep it for the Quality Crops Bundle.  

Pumpkins are one of the best gifts you can give to Abigail, so make sure to capitalize on that!

Maturity   Regrowth Buying Price 
13 Days N/A 100g

Sweet gem Berry

Sweet Gem Berry Crops

The last one for Fall has to be the Sweet Gem Berry. Only obtainable with a Rare Seed found in the Traveling Cart, this is one of the most profitable crops on Stardew Valley. Selling one is triple the amount of your initial investment!  

The downside to this fantastic crop is that it’s hard to come by in large quantities, even in Summer and Spring. What’s worse is that the chance of it appearing in other seasons is 1.26%. But if you have the opportunity to stock this crop before Fall, your patience will be rewarded.  

Sweet Gem Berries are one of the longest on the list regarding maturity. Although you can only ever have one harvest each season, the profits you’ll receive won’t disappoint. 

This crop is neither fruit nor vegetable, so the Tiller profession will not affect its selling price.

Here are the stats for this crop: 

Maturity   Regrowth Buying Price 
24 Days N/A 1,000g 

These are its Selling Prices: 

Quality Selling Price With Tiller 
Normal 3,000g N/A 
Silver 3,750 N/A 
Gold 4,500 N/A 
Iridium 6,000 N/A 

Greenhouse crops

Greenhouse Building

Planting crops in the Greenhouse is an excellent way to generate profits throughout the year, especially in winter. Planting Stardew Valley’s most profitable crops from this guide is optimal. Planting at least one crop that regrows, like Blueberries, and planting high-value single harvest crops are recommended.

Ancient Fruit

Ancient Fruit Crops

If you have access to Ancient seeds, planting these in the Greenhouse throughout the year is highly advised as it is an excellent source of income. With the longest maturity period on the list, it’s no mistake to plant these primarily in the Greenhouse. You don’t have to worry about replanting these rare seeds as it consistently regrows.  

The only way to obtain these seeds is if you find the “Ancient Seed” Artifact, or if you’re lucky, a 1.26% chance in the Traveling Cart. Crafting a Seed Maker instead of waiting to find more seeds is a more convenient option.

Here are the crop stats: 

Maturity   Regrowth Buying Price (Traveling Cart)
28 Days 7 Days 100 – 1,000g 

The table for Selling prices is as follows: 

Quality Selling Price With Tiller 
Normal 550g 605g 
Silver 687g 755g 
Gold 825g 907g 
Iridium 1,100g 1,210g 


Farming is all about consistency and picking suitable crops for the job. Planting strategically and early is a crucial part of maximizing your income. Taking the Tiller profession is a plus if you want to boost your efforts. And to take it even further, you can make most of these crops into Artisan goods for extra profit!   

Every season isn’t the same regarding the choice of high-value crops. The important part is that you don’t zero out on all the potential profits you can make. So go out there and plant the best crops that fit you!
