Fruit Trees

From Stardew Valley Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
For trees that are chopped down for wood, see Trees.

Fruit Trees require 28 days to mature, after which they produce one fruit per day when in season. Fruit can be allowed to accumulate up to three days before harvesting. Fruit trees do not need to be watered, and will not die in the winter. Fruit saplings will grow during any season, allowing players to plant and prepare for upcoming season to bear fruit.

Each Fruit tree must be planted in the center of a clear 3x3 ground area in order to grow. The 3x3 area must remain clear of objects or the tree's development will be hindered. Note that each fruit tree requires its own clear 3x3 grid, not overlapping the 3x3 grid of another fruit tree. Thus, the nearest you can plant saplings next to each other is with two tiles between them in every direction.

A Fruit Tree is planted directly into untilled ground. When fully grown, the surrounding area can be paved with crafted floors or paths. Fruit trees can grow in the Greenhouse, in the center soil or around the border.

Fruit trees can be chopped down, and yield normal wood. Fruit trees can be struck by lightning, causing them to become burnt for 4 days. During this time, they will not produce fruit, but will instead produce coal. After the 4 days are up, they will return to normal.

Fruit trees cannot be moved or relocated like farm buildings legitimately without the use of editing game files, so take extra caution in placing saplings, as the position will be permanent.

A complete set of all six fruit tree saplings costs a total of Coin Icon25,400g.

Fruit Quality & Price

Fruit Tree fruit increases in quality by 1 star per year of tree age after reaching maturity. Fruit trees will produce silver star fruit after one year, and gold star fruit after two years. After the third year fruit trees produce iridium quality fruit.

Note that fruit quality will not increase if the surrounding tiles are not kept clear. Several players have reported that crafted floors and paths as well as grass do not hinder the progression of quality fruit.

Fruit Tree fruit receives the Tiller Profession crop price bonus when sold, and jelly, juice, or wine made from fruit tree fruits receive the Artisan Profession price bonus when sold.

Planning and Planting Tips

If you intend to plant fruit trees on the east side of the Greenhouse, take extra care to plan your layout. To the north of the Greenhouse there is one row of tiles, directly south of the rockface, that is darker-colored and untillable, but can be used as a walkway. The second row is ordinary tillable farmland. The Greenhouse sits atop the third row of tiles. To the east of the Greenhouse, two columns of tiles have grass and are untillable, and the third is ordinary tillable farmland, directly south of the cave entrance. In the fourth column east of the Greenhouse, and the third row south of the rockface then, you would expect to be able to plant a fruit tree, according to the normal spacing rules. However, the game refuses to allow a fruit tree planting on the particular tile at their intersection. Either of the tiles to the east or south of this one are allowable. (Ordinary trees can be planted on that tile.)

Be sure your layout will allow the planting of all your intended fruit trees where you want them to be, especially if you plant them at various times, since otherwise, this anomaly can disrupt your plans and layout. Remember that, once planted, a fruit tree cannot be removed except by cutting it down (destroying it and sacrificing the investment).

Placing paths: If you place paths while the trees are still growing (before they produce fruit), it will not allow the trees to grow. Wait until after they produce fruit to place any paths/flooring and keep the ground clear in order to allow fruit trees to grow quickly.

History

  • 1.0: Introduced.
  • 1.1: Fruit trees can now produce iridium quality fruit. Trees increase quality by 1 star per year of age after reaching maturity.
