Each crop comes with its own unique growing times and buying and selling prices. While all crops are beneficial of course, some are worth more than others. Animals aren’t the only way to profit on the farm, so making sure to get a spring garden out is essential. In short, players want crops that grow fast and sell high. And when spring rolls around the corner, make sure not to be stuck with a bunch of off-season vegetables.

Updated on November 24, 2022, by Anastasia Maillot: Spring is a special time in Stardew Valley. Not only is it the season in which the game first begins, and therefore the very first crop season for most farmers, but it’s also the time when players start to prep their farm again after not growing anything outside the whole of winter. A successful spring can make a huge difference in player profits. If players manage to choose the right crops during spring and successfully prep for summer, which is no doubt the most important season in Stardew Valley, they can earn some serious gold. Although no new crops have been added to Stardew Valley as ConcernedApe has turned all his attention to his next game, the Haunted Chocolatier, a few additions, such as a growth time table for all spring crops have been added to this list of the best spring crops in Stardew Valley.

12/12 Coffee Bean

  • How To Get:
    Kill dust sprites or buy from the Traveling Cart

  • Selling Price Range:
    15-30 gold

Coffee Beans might rank low on this list due to their low selling price, but they should still be a staple for many farmers. In fact, Coffee Beans are somewhat of a crop apart from everything else due to their incredibly great utility. They’re used to make coffee and eventually triple shot espresso, which provides a speed buff to the player and is extremely useful in dangerous dungeons like the Volcano or Skull Cavern.

In terms of pure profit, however, they’re a hard pass. Coffee Beans will grow into a bush within ten days, after which they continue to yield crops every second day. The beans themselves can’t be consumed.

11/12 Unmilled Rice

  • Selling Price Range:
    30-60 gold

One of the cheapest spring crops to grow on Stardew Valley is “unmilled rice.” These start out as rice shoots. Once planted, they have a turnaround time of eight days, and only six days when grown by a river or pond. It costs 40 gold to purchase these rice shoots.

The unmilled rice itself can sell for as little as 30 gold, and as much as 60 gold, so the profit probability is hit and miss here. However, players who take exceptionally good care of their rice can definitely come out ahead in the end. Just be sure to fertilize and water accordingly.

10/12 Tulip Bulb

Stardew Valley Tulips

  • How To Get:
    Pierre’s Store or JojaMart

  • Selling Price Range:
    30-60 gold

Tulips are one of the many flowers players can grow in the game. As such, they don’t make the best crop since they have a narrow utility. In fact, tulips are best used as gifts given to villagers, but even then, only Evelyn seems to really love these flowers, while the majority of the village simply likes them. Clint, George, and Sebastian dislike tulips entirely.

Tulips Bulbs cost 20 gold at Pierre’s and 25 at JojaMart. They take six days to grow. While they can be eaten for a bit of health and energy, there’s really no reason at all to invest in them due to their limited use.

9/12 Jazz Seeds

Italian food just isn’t the same without this staple crop. In Stardew Valley, players can purchase garlic for 40 gold, then sell it for at least 60 gold, or 120 gold at maximum quality. The great thing about this crop is that it only takes four days to grow to its maturity.

This is also a great crop to keep as well. Players can make “oil of garlic” with this crop, which sells for 1,000 gold! Players can drink the oil of garlic to help keep pesky insects and critters away in the mines. This lasts for up to 10 minutes and it can keep floors from unannounced infestations. There are many benefits to growing this spring crop, so players can’t go wrong with this one.

7/12 Parsnip

Stardew Valley parsnips

    35-70 gold

These are one of the most basic spring crops around, but they’re cheap and they’re guaranteed to at least give players a 10 gold profit. Plus, they mature quickly, only taking four days to reach their harvest day. Parsnips are also great because they’re diverse for cooking. Players can use parsnips to make a Farmer’s Lunch, Parsnip Soup, and to help fill the Spring Crops and Quality Crops bundles at the Community Center.

It sounds basic, but it’s important to get those crops bundled as quickly as possible. Otherwise, it won’t be available again until the next growing season. Oh, and for those who want to be friends with Pam, beer isn’t the only way to her heart. Try giving Pam a parsnip and see how she responds!

Not many people dislike potatoes. A surefire way to make a profit during the spring in Stardew Valley is by planting this favorite root vegetable. These are available for 50 gold (which is 12 gold cheaper than JoJa Mart, which is all the more reason to support small businesses!)

Potatoes can sell for as little as 80 gold, or as much as 160 gold. They mature in just six days, and they’re used to make hashbrowns which help produce lots of heat and energy. Potatoes are by far one of the best spring crops both in real life and in the game.

Kale is also a very healthy crop, providing plenty of energy and health to players. Plus, it can be used in salmon and stir fry to really strengthen its nutrition. Even players who won’t touch kale in real life can benefit from its in-game usage.

4/12 Green Beans

It takes 10 days for a green bean plant to grow, and it only costs 60 gold to buy a plant at Pierre’s. Again, JoJa Mart is way too overpriced, so don’t waste any time there. Just be careful when gifting these veggies, as most villagers are not a fan of them.

3/12 Cauliflower

  • How To Get:
    Pierre’s Store or JojaMart

  • Selling Price Range:
    175-350 gold

While cauliflower plants take a bit longer to mature, (up to 12 days), they’re well worth the wait. Players can buy these plants for only 80 gold at Pierre’s, and the plants themselves will sell for as little as 175 gold. A high-quality cauliflower plant brings up to 350 gold!

Maru loves these plants, and the “Cheese Cauliflower” recipe is to die for. Players definitely need to put a few of these back for special occasions. Their profit is so high that it’s feasible to do so!

2/12 Rhubarb

It doesn’t seem like anyone really eats rhubarb. Most people barely even know what it is. However, in Stardew Valley, villagers seem to love it. It’s inedible on its own, but it can be used as Rhubarb pie which is a pretty safe gift bet within the village.

This crop is a bit more expensive. It costs 100 gold, but it can sell anywhere from 220 gold to 440 gold, It takes 13 days to mature, but the profit is definitely worth it. Buy a bunch of these suckers and watch the gold stack up!
