Crop Basics

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories
Last Updated:

When it comes to maintaining your farm and restoring it to its former glory, a major role in fulfilling this particular task involves crops (planting, raising, and harvesting).

In the beginning, you will be greeted by Rowan and this friendly Harvest Sprite shall give you a brief tutorial on how to carry on with your farming tasks. To learn more on how to plant crops, see our page on how to plant crops.

Once you have exhausted all the free crops that were given to you, you may proceed in acquiring more gifts by mainly purchasing seeds from Sam (or even Iris). If you’re lucky, you may also gain a few more seeds as rewards if you get to restore a few memories (see our Memory guide). There are a total of 155 crops which you can plant. While there are 40 types of flowers and 10 kinds of items available through foraging.

When it comes to crops, this game differs from previous Harvest Moon games since it doesn’t allow your harvested crop to grow more crops once you are done harvesting it. Another difference too is that once the crop has been harvested, the field in which the crop grew will be cleared and will allow you to create a newer layout in your farm. Then there is also another striking difference—in this version of Harvest Moon, you will get to experience Crop Mutation, a feature in which crops that are grown and planted in their preferred season will and may produce a different crop ( for example a potato may turn into a herb). Also depending on the season in which the crop is planted and harvested, lies a chance in which a crop may be a “great” crop.

One way to get ahead of the game is to be familiar with the seasons in which crops are best planted or harvested.

Spring: Cabbage, Celery, Onion , and Strawberry

Summer: Tomato, Corn, Green Pepper, Wheat

Fall: Hot Pepper, Potato, Carrot, and Pumpkin

Winter: Spinach, Brocolli
