The onion is one of the summer crops in the game. They’re not the best crop to plant in terms of profit, but it grows quickly. You can use onions in a lot of recipes though, and you can use the dish you made as a gift to the townspeople.
Shipping 100 onions is a requirement to unlock pumpkin seeds, a special crop that only grows during summer.
Note: The Supermarket is closed on the first of summer because of the Beach Festival. You can only buy seeds on the second day of summer.
Days to Mature: 7 days
Renewable Crop: No
Where to buy Seeds: Supermarket
Maximum Harvests Per Season: 4 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.

Max Profit Formation (3×3) vs Optimized U-Shape Formation
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.
The crops you grow on your farm make excellent gifts to the townspeople. You can increase its effect on the townspeople’s affection by wrapping it in wrapping paper at the Supermarket before gifting it to them.
