The Salmonberry is a foraged fruit found on bushes in Stardew Valley during Salmonberry Season (Spring 15-18). It won't be found in the wild outside those days. It can be found at any time (randomly) in the Farm Cave if the fruit bat option is chosen.
Salmonberry has the lowest sell value of any foraged item, making it one of the few fruits that is worth more as a Jelly than a Wine. With Bear's Knowledge, processing Salmonberries into Wine may even result in a loss of money.
The number of berries obtained from each salmonberry bush increases as the player's Foraging Skill increases. At Level 4, two berries will be harvested from each bush instead of one. At Level 8, three berries will be harvested from each bush. If Foraging Skill is temporarily increased to 12 or 13 with a Foraging Buff (by consuming food), then 4 berries will be harvested from each bush.
Salmonberries harvested from bushes never grant any Foraging XP.
With the Botanist profession all Salmonberries, from all sources, will be iridium quality. Otherwise, berries shaken from bushes will always be regular quality, regardless of Foraging skill. Therefore, the only source of silver and gold quality salmonberries is the Farm Cave.
Even though Salmonberries are a foraged fruit, they benefit from the +10% Tiller profession price bonus, but the bonus is too small to have an effect unless the player also has the Botanist profession (iridium quality) or Bear's Knowledge. The only exception is Salmonberries found in the Farm Cave, which do not receive the Tiller bonus unless they are combined in a stack with bush Salmonberries (see the fruit page for details.)
Gifting Salmonberry Wine
Salmonberry Wine is the cheapest wine available for gifting.
Gifting Salmonberry Jelly
Salmonberry Jelly is the cheapest jelly available for gifting.
It is not used in any bundles, but it can be put into a Keg to make Salmonberry Wine, which can be used in Enchanter's Bundle on the Bulletin Board, the cheapest option for that donation. It can also be aged in a Cask to silver quality for the The Missing Bundle in the abandoned JojaMart.
Salmonberry is not used in any recipes.
Salmonberry is not used in any quests.
While the game suggests gathering Salmonberries to get extra cash, its low sell value also makes it a cheap source of energy and health, and an inexpensive gift to those who like it. Salmonberries can be especially valuable in year 1, when energy resources and gift options are limited. Raising your Foraging level to 4 in the first two weeks (difficult but possible) may yield a total harvest of over 400 salmonberries (over 10,000 supplemental energy).
- 1.3: Added Bear's Knowledge.
- 1.4: Can now be used in Tailoring. Fixed how Tiller bonus applies when foraged and non-foraged fruit are combined in one stack.
