Crops are the center of your farm life in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. You sell them for gold, cook them into dishes, and even give them as gifts to other villagers.

But which crops will give you the biggest profit margin for each season?

This guide will cover the most profitable crops that you can grow throughout the year if you want to maximize the earnings from your field.

Spring: Cabbages and Turnips

Turnips Cabbages
Store General Store Huang’s Store
Seeds Price 120 G 500 G
Maturity 4 days 14 days
Regrowth None None
Base Sell Price (per crop) 60 G 250 G
Profit per Harvest 420 G 1,750 G

Cabbages are generally the best crop to grow in Spring because they sell for the highest price.

However, not everyone will have the funds to buy Cabbage seeds in their first Spring or after a Winter drought! These little green crops also take half the season (14 days) to completely mature.

So if you need money ASAP, Turnips are actually the golden crop for the season.

Turnips grow 3.5x faster than Cabbages, and their seeds are a lot cheaper.

For a lower initial investment, you can get essentially the same returns because you can harvest Turnips at a more frequent rate.

Summer: Pineapples

Regrowth 5 days
Base Sell Price (per crop) 500 G
Profit per Harvest 3,500 G

There’s a reason why Pineapples are the most popular crop in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town.

For an amazing minimum selling price of 500 G, the work required to grow Pineapples definitely pays off once you harvest these wonderful fruits.

To maximize your profits during this season, plant your seeds on the very first day of Summer so you can harvest your Pineapples twice.

Autumn: Green Peppers

Profit per Harvest 210 G

At first, Green Peppers don’t look like very impressive plants.

Each Green Pepper only sells for a measly 40 G, which can turn off a lot of players from cultivating these plants during Autumn.

However, the appeal of Green Peppers is attributed to their rapid regrowth.

Once fully mature, you can harvest them every 2 days. This allows you to sell a lot of Peppers very quickly without the need to re-till the soil and plant new seeds.

So if you plant these early in Autumn and keep them watered, they actually end up being the best crop to turn a profit before winter.
