Best crops to grow in the fall in Stardew Valley
When growing crops in Stardew Valley, keep in mind that berries can grow at any time of the year, including autumn (they require greenhouses in winter). For example, blueberries and cranberries usually produce more than one berry per plant, so they are more profitable than other varieties. It only takes a few days for these fruits to grow, which allows for a stable small income.
Cranberries should be planted in the fall, and after 7 days each plant is guaranteed to produce two berries. Moreover, it does not need to be sown again – every next 5 days the bush will give another crop. A regular cranberry sells for 75 gold, while an iridium-quality berry costs twice as much at 150 coins. Therefore, you should not ignore fertilizers in order to significantly increase profits in the end.
The second most profitable crop that can be grown in the fall is pumpkin. It is extremely profitable and sells for 320gp at normal quality and 640gp at iridium quality. However, it grows much longer than cranberries. It will take 13 days to fully ripen, that is, only two crops can be harvested in the fall.
However, pumpkins are very valuable in other ways as well. While they are not edible, they can be used in many recipes. In addition, pumpkins are loved by Abigail, Krobus and Willie. At the same time, there is a chance to get an increased yield. To do this, plant the pumpkins with a 3 × 3 grid. Every day there is a small chance that the harvest will become gigantic, that is, it will be possible to harvest from 15 to 21 units.
You can also grow sweet berries in the fall. It is technically the most profitable crop in Stardew Valley. However, the traveling merchant only sells one seed at a time. The berry grows and ripens for 24 days, after which it can actually be sold at a price of at least 3000 and at most 6000 gold. Recall that sweet culture may be needed to complete the quest with the statue of Master Canolli.
