The Most Profitable Crops In Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley has landed on the Nintendo Switch, introducing an entirely new set of players to the game’s peerless simple farm life action. Aside from tracking down rare ingredients and diving into the mines to score some valuable ore, burgeoning farmers are likely caught up with laying out their land and seeking out the right seeds in order to make the biggest profit. Though the given choices of fruits and vegetables might seem confusing at first, there are a few choices for seasonal crops that provide more bang for the buck over the others. Don’t waste all that time tilling and watering for nothing — maximize your financial gains by planting and harvesting the most profitable crops in Stardew Valley.

The Six Best Spring Crops

Spring time in Stardew valley is a time when players can take some extra time to consider where they want to plant crops for the rest of the year. Though the bulk of that work should likely be handled in winter, oftentimes buying sprinklers and upgrading tools can put a drain on the player’s funds. As such, many of the seeds during spring are cheap to buy with relatively-low profits when compared to crops in other seasons.

The Six Best Summer Crops

By summertime, players should hopefully have a sizeable amount of profits with which to buy seeds. Aside from planting those vegetables which might be needed for things like quests or the Community Center bundles, players should focus most of their attention on Blueberries, as this crop can yield significant profit throughout the season.

That’s a good thing, because fall is when players can grow Cranberries, one of the most profitable common crops in the game. If done correctly, players should earn more than enough money from Cranberries to make substantial upgrades during Winter and still have cash left over to start the process anew the following spring.
