What is a Mahogany Tree in Stardew Valley?

It’s one of the four common trees you’ll find almost everywhere on your map, alongside the Maple, Oak, and Pine trees. Taking it down offers you some regular wood and Mahogany Seeds. While if you attach a Tapper or Heavy Tapper to it, you’ll receive a Sap every single day.

Moreover, it’s available in all seasons, making it convenient for you to gather more pieces of wood.

How to Obtain Mahogany Trees’ seeds in Stardew Valley?

You may obtain its seed by shaking a fully-matured tree (Stage 5) or simply chopping it off with an Axe. You can’t purchase it from any local store; you must be at Foraging level one to get it. Anyhow, here are some ways to get them in-game:

  • Cracking a Golden Coconut.
  • Killing Slimes from the Secret Woods.
  • Chopping a large log or stump.
  • Digging a seed from its Stage one development with a hoe, axe, or pickaxe.
  • Trading a Stingray with the Island Trader.

How to Grow Mahogany Trees in Stardew Valley?

Don’t forget to add this fertilizer to quicken its growth!

Growing these plants can take some time. If their seeds aren’t fertilized with a Tree Fertilizer, they may take a median growth time of 24 days to mature. Additionally, 99% of them may grow within 38 days, but this excludes winter. While 99% may reach full maturity in 55 days.

However, it depends on the trees’ growth; there’s only 15% for a Mahogany to reach the next stage without fertilizer. While if you add this add-on, there’s a 60% chance for it to grow to the following stage. 

Here are the stages of its growth:

Stage 1
