Winter Seeds are a type of Crafted seed. The crafting recipe is labeled "Wild Seeds (Wi)", but when crafted, the result is "Winter Seeds." Mature plants yield, at random, a Crocus, Crystal Fruit, Snow Yam, or Winter Root. Winter Seeds are the only seed that can grow outdoors during Winter.

Winter Seeds are one of the season-specific crafted wild seeds, along with Spring Seeds, Summer Seeds, and Fall Seeds that produce crops normally found as forage. While Farming Skill normally increases the chance to grow a quality crop, Foraging Skill increases the chance to grow a quality crop from Winter Seeds.

A mature plant grown from a Winter Seed may leave untilled soil in its place, when harvested. Any fertilizer used will be lost in this case.

Crows do not attack crops grown from Winter Seeds, so the use of Scarecrows is unnecessary.
