Sunflower Seeds are a type of seed. Mature plants yield Sunflowers and 0-2 Sunflower Seeds.

They can be purchased at Pierre's General Store, at JojaMart, from the Magic Shop Boat at the Night Market on Winter 16 & 17, and occasionally from the Traveling Cart. They can also be obtained by using the Seed Maker. Sunflower Seeds are the only seeds you can buy cheaper at JojaMart than at Pierre's General Store.

  • When selling Sunflower Seeds to Pierre, seeds collected by harvesting Sunflowers or purchased from Pierre sell for Gold.png20g each. However, seeds purchased from JojaMart sell for Gold.png100g. Thus, if you purchase one seed from JojaMart, then add collected seeds to that stack in inventory, all the seeds will sell for Gold.png100g each.
    • If you instead add the purchased seed to the stack of collected seeds (or seeds purchased from Pierre), all the seeds will sell for Gold.png20g each.


  • 1.0: Introduced.
  • 1.1: Made plantable in summer in addition to fall.
  • 1.4: Sunflower Seeds purchased from Pierre now sell back to him for Gold.png20g instead of Gold.png100g.
