One of the first things that tutorials will teach players is how to grow, cultivate, and harvest crops. In Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, farming is one of the few ways that players will earn money for the first few seasons. After that, it's one of the finest methods to earn money, as long as players know what they're doing.
For those who aren't sure what must be done or which crops will reap the greatest rewards, farming can be overwhelming. This is why it is so important to utilize each season and cultivate only the finest edible money-makers.
Garlic is acknowledged to be one of the most reliable Spring crops due to its ability to grow multiple times before it needs to be replanted and the substantial cost it incurs once it is shipped. This crop is worth planting consistently throughout the Spring, since it takes five days to mature fully.
A garlic harvest will cost 315 grams to ship, followed by a 10-star quality, and then another 10-star to 473 grams. Additionally, garlic can be regrown three times from the same plant before it requires replanting, making it a fairly consistent moneymaker.
Players may have expected turnips to make the cut when it came to the most profitable crops in Pioneers of Olive Town. Although they may not be at the top of the player's priority list, these crops can provide a steady passive incoming as the season progresses.
Turnips produce one piece per crop and have one sprout per plant, making it seem like a small reward for so much effort when replanting these plants every five days. A Giant Turnip mutation will return 384G at standard quality, 480G at 5-Star Quality, or 576G at 10-Star Quality. But these mutated plants are so rare that they are considered as a hidden treasure.
A strawberry harvest may yield up to three fruits at a time, each coming in at 125G, 156G for a 5-Star rating, or 188G for a 10-Star rating. It's unfortunate that this crop doesnt produce more than one crop per plant, but that doesnt mean it shouldn't be grown.
Players may plant strawberries at the start of the season, allowing them to produce at least three sets of crops before the summer season.
Onions have a long growth period of six days, but their rewards are unquestionably greater. Bringing in 286G with no quality, 358G for 5-Stars, and 429G for 10-Stars, this crop is undoubtedly one of the most profitable in Spring time.
One plant will only yield one onion, and the plant can only be harvested once. However, when players enter the Pioneers of Olive Town, several onions will already be sprouting in Area One of the farm, which is a great place to start making some money.
The single harvest each plant produces, which takes a whopping twelve days, certainly feels like a waste of time, but beans are more than meets the eye in Story of Seasons, especially since they are among the cheapest to buy.
Beans arent worth the 12 days it takes to grow, yet given each harvest there are up to five items to ship, the effort begins to pay for itself. In addition, as the player's farm improves its general quality, beans will begin to increase in value. Resulting in 100G per five-start crop and 120G per ten-star.
5 Daikon Radish
Daikon Radishes are extremely beneficial plants to start growing as soon as possible. They also have the ability to produce a modified version of the vegetable known as a Fork-Root Daikon.
A standard Diakon Radish will take four days to grow and produce one crop per plant, bringing in 234G with a 5-Star quality, or 351G with a 10-Star quality. However, if a farmer discovers a Fork-Root Daikon, a possibility of 468G, 585G, or 702G is on the line.
If players keep looking for an item to sell after its first harvest, cucumbers might be the answer to their prayers. Each plant can rerow three times following its initial harvest, and each harvest yields three crops.
Cucumbers are a solid addition to any farm in desperate need of some easy gold, bringing in a decent 70G per standard crop, 88G per 5-star, or 105G per 10-star, all while mentioning how cheap cucumber seeds are to obtain.
Broccoli is a great plant to cultivate in either Winter or Spring since it is another vegetable that can produce more than one harvest from a single plant following its first harvest after a six-day growth period. A broccoli harvest will continue to produce a harvest every three days.
Each harvest may yield up to three broccoli, delivering at least 120 grams per piece. Relying on farm quality, players may receive 150 grams or even greater 180 grams per 10-Star harvest.
Cabbages are a must-have for any beginning farmer looking to make the most of spring. Their growth time is a little shorter than other vegetables, taking seven days to produce one plant, but their payoff lines pocket very nicely. A single cabbage will return 448G, while a 5-star quality will return 560G, and an astounding 672G per vegetable for a 10-Star quality.
The main drawback to these big beauties is their single yield per plant. However, this is compensated for by the fact that they may be found in Area One of the player's farm in either Spring or Winter.
Potatoes may appear as an insignificant addition to the list of essential crops for the Spring. However, their impressive yield of four pieces per plant and their relatively quick six-day cultivation make them a worthwhile crop to consider, especially if you have a potential mutation, much like the Daikon Radish, where star potatoes may appear. In addition, these have a gold return of twice the price of a standard potato.
Although their gold return is disappointing, at 42G per standard potato, 53G per 5-star potato, and 63G per ten-star, farmers can produce and ship these foods at a speed that makes them ideal for anyone looking for the finest ways to earn passive income.
Pioneers of Olive Town is now available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.
