One of the fall crops that you can plant in the game is green peppers. It’s a renewable crop that grows fast, although it’s one of the cheapest crops to sell in the game. You can use green peppers as an ingredient in many recipes, or give them to the townspeople as gifts.

Season: Fall

Days to Mature: 7 days

Renewable Crop: Yes (Regrows in 2 days)

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

Maximum Harvests Per Season: 12 times, assuming you plant on the first day of the season.

Tip: 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.
