The cabbage is one of the spring crops in the game. Cabbage seeds cost a whopping 500G, but it is the best crop to plant in spring in terms of profit. Once you have the gold to buy cabbage seeds from Won, you should immediately plant it as it takes half a season to fully grow.

Season: Spring

Days to Mature: 14 days

Renewable Crop: No

Where to buy Seeds: Won’s Shop at Zack’s house on Mineral Beach

Maximum Harvests Per Season: 2 times, assuming you plant at least on the second day of the season.

Important Note: Watering your crops once a day is very important! Seeds and crops stop growing if you don’t water it for a day. Renewable crops will also not regrow if you forget to water them.

The best way to plant crops is the U-Shape Formation. This method of planting crops ensures that no seed goes to waste since you can water and harvest them all. This is the optimal way of planting renewable crops.

The 3×3 formation is the best in terms of profit. You should only use the 3×3 square formation if you have an upgraded watering can, as you won’t be able to reach the crop at the center of the square without it. It’s also wise to use the 3×3 formation when planting non-renewable crops.
