Certainly, farming can be a relaxing routine for many. All you have to do are tilt the ground, scatter seeds, water around, and voila, time to ship it for gold. Deciding what to grow can even be a whim. Some players might even be growing based on the best profit they can get. In here, we will have discussion each crop. Comparisons will be highlighted to find out the best money-earning ones in each season.

The rule of thumb in crop planting will be do not plant flowers. They don’t profit at all. Other than that, hidden seed crops are highlighted in red, while seeds sold by Won are highlighted in blue.

Spring

Spring is perhaps the most crucial season on decision making for first year players. Although new players are suggested to go for cucumber (Kappa) and potato (rushing early funds for rucksack and horse racing), they are not necessarily the best crop out there to be planted in spring.

Strawberry9(3)17150653945

Based on the table, Strawberry proved to be best earning crop in spring, not Cabbage. However, since Strawberry is one of the hidden seeds, it will be unavailable to the player until the unlock condition is met. Cabbage being the second highest earning is sold by Won. Despite being the second best option, the high seed price and long growth discourage first year players from getting their hands on it. The best crop for first year players is actually Turnip.

Summer

There is not much to say about this seasons other than pineapples really. You should focus on pineapples, and pineapples. This preach remain the same for all players, unless you are aiming for hidden seed unlock. For veteran SoS players, you may notice the changes in price in some crops (Reduction for Tomato and Corn, and Increase for Pumpkin).

As expected from its many predecessor, Pineapple remains as the champion summer crop in the game. Its high profit is jaw dropping, tempting a good amount of players to abuse bug to keep them growing throughout the year (yes, it is possible. We will talk about that next time in another article). Coming second would be Corn, the one useful crop you can find out there. Corn can be turn into Chicken/Rabbit Feeding, and planting a good amount of them can easily make yourself self sufficient in poultry food. Likewise, players can turn Corn into Popcorn to gain Karen’s undying affection.

Autumn

The new crops added for autumn are Chili and Red Bean. The change made autumn to have a whooping 7 types of crops to be grown, causing autumn to be most likely the busiest season of the year.

Surprisingly, Green Pepper replaced Sweet Potato when it comes in this game (Back then, Sweet Potato used to profit even higher than Pineapple). Due to the clashes in number of growth day and next harvest day, you will generally find yourself having a chaos in harvesting. There are no exact cure on this, unless you are willing to spread out the planting time (which lowers your season’s profit).
