I am still early in the game in spring and the vast majority of my plants are bean stalks that continously produce. Will all of these crops die out completely when winter rolls around or other season changes? Showing 1 - 5 of 5 comments. Kiya View Profile View Posts.
Most crops die at the seasons end. There are only a few that last more than one season. When you buy them at the store it tells you which season they are for and how long they will take to grow.

The only crop that won't do this is Corn since it can be grown during both Summer and Fall.

It happened before and I don't know why. I have a scarecrow and there wasn't any storms happening. Does anybody know about this?

Also, several of the "spring seed" and "mixed seed" crops go through a phase where they look dead--all brownish and stuff--but are still growing. If you aren't sure, try swiping them with the scythe--if they are truly dead, this will remove them; if it doesn't, they are still alive. Yeah, one of my blueberry bushes was randomly dead one day, but I noticed it after a storm day. Can lightning destroy singular crops? Originally posted by MrGrumpsman :.
The only reasons for crops to be left wilted is when the season changes and they are no longer in season or they are struck by lightning, I think. All I can say is watch and wait; it could be a bug if not because of the aforementioned reasons. Originally posted by thelefthorse :. Last edited by red ; 10 Apr am.
Those aren't dead, they are the wild fall seeds you got from the community centre.Making money in Stardew Valley is vital. Without it, you won't be able to do most things or expand your operation at all. There are countless ways to go about turning a profit on your work or items, but some are definitely better than others. The main source of income, at least in the first year or two, will be your crops.
Each crop's seeds cost a different amount, as do the crops when you sell them. To make the most money, you'll need to know which crops earn more than others. Of course, different professions, artisan good-making, and other criteria will change which crop works best for you. Speaking more generally, here are the best and worst crops in Stardew Valley. Spring doesn't have any truly terrible crops. Strawberries have insane profit margins, green beans reproduce a few times throughout the season and are reliable, and cauliflower can become the fabled giant crop.
This is of course, for regular crops that can be sold as-is. Rice is another story. When planted from a rice shoot, you'll lose money on this crop. The shoot costs 40 gold while the unmilled rice's base value is only 30 gold.
It's meant to be turned into milled rice, but even that sells for only a measly gold. These star-shaped crops are fantastic.
They sell at a base rate of gold, which is way higher than most crops. When processed into wine, they're one of the best goods to sell in the game. Once you have access to the desert oasis, these seeds are worth picking up. The reason Starfruit is not higher on this list is twofold: they only have a single harvest and then need to be replanted, and you have to have access to the desert to get them.
They're great, but not the single best crop. Corn is an interesting crop. It's one of the only plants that will not die at the turn of the season. If you plant corn in the summer, it will continue growing through fall. Plus, it doesn't disappear after a single harvest and keeps reproducing. If you're only planting corn in one season, it's not the best choice. You'll get about four harvests of corn through one season, and about 11 harvests through two seasons.
Given corn's somewhat-alright profit margin, you're wasting your money if you cut it down after a single season. On the other hand, if you leave corn through the change of season, it's actually pretty good. You'll get hopefully 11 harvests out of your corn if you plant it on the first day of summer. This takes the abysmal profits of one season and supercharges them, giving you much more value for the money you spent on seeds.
The bonus here is also in terms of work.
If you have corn plants when fall rolls around, you don't need to waste the first day planting new crops and can start on other work right away. Corn and the goods it can be made into is also needed for a few different Community Centre bundles. Artichokes, like Rhubarb, are not the worst crops ever, but they aren't the best in their season, either.
Artichoke seeds are available in the fall starting in Year 2.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts. Change language. Install Steam. Store Page. Stardew Valley Store Page. Global Achievements. I heard you can get giant crops in the game but the wiki is a little vague about those.

The way I understand it is every day you leave the fully grown crops unharvested there's a random chance that they'll fuse into a giant crop as long as they're in a 3X3 chunk, which can be planted right next to another 3X3 chunk, which would provide a total of four possible spots that it could occur in, I don't think it's guaranteed to happen, but you can improve the odds by having as many 3X3 plots of land next to each other as you can handle, on the grounds that the more figurative dice you roll the more likely you are to get at least one of them to land on the number you want.
When they are ready for harvester they fuse, if they dont fuse then plant again. Plant loots of seeds together. Hazar View Profile View Posts. I think there's a condition for it happen. I got lots of giant crops when I didn't use fertlizer. Maybe all the 3x3 crops must be the same star level, who knows :.

I have sprinklers covering all of my crops, so I never have to worry about watering them, but after rainy days I will usually have a couple of crops die. It seems to be random, and it doesn't always happen, but I can't find any explanation for it. They're not being eaten by crows, and they're obviously not dying of thirst.
Does anyone know what the issue might be? I play with mods, which might be the issue, but I can't think of any mods that would cause the problem. Here's a picture of what the dead crops look like. It's similar to when crops die due to a season change. Last edited by Gubra Lagima ; 6 May, pm.

Yep, only a few multi season crop survive the change. Such as corns, ancient fruit, and rare seed perhaps. That's why you need to count when to plant, when to harvest.
