Introduction	[1.00]
------------------------
This is my 2nd FAQ so I hope it's informative enough. In this FAQ, it 
includes the type of crops in the game, how to unlock them, which one 
is the best for the season and the amount of points needed for the plants 
to advance. Enough of me talking, Now I start (except for the version 
history. Suck.) Also, something to do with crops, don't sell them to chen. 
He pays a lot less for the crops than normal shipping.

If you see anything wrong, if there is something else I need to add or you 
have a question, don't hesitate to e-mail me at al.xeo@hotmail.com. 


Version history	[2.00]
------------------------
Version 1.0 : 20.11.09
I start this FAQ now with just the seasonal crops. I don't have any of the 
grains or the trees yet, but I hopefully will later.

Version 1.1 : 26.11.09
Didn't get accepted by gameFAQ's, so I need to put some more information on. 
Added tree and grain crops and some small changes (like punctuation)

Version 1.2 : 2.12.09
I'm just putting in another version showing that I didn't work for some 
time, but now I'm going to hopefully. Also, I probably have to put an 
explantion about the set out of the crop info, but nobody knows about it 
anyway. 

Version 1.3 : 10.12.09
Got accepted by gamefaqs and am now putting it on neoseeker, so I'm just 
changing the copyright laws a bit.
        
Crops			[3.00]
------------------------
In this version of Harvest Moon, you no longer water your crops everyday 
and get your crops on a certain day. In this version, a set amount of sun 
and water points are needed for your crop to advance to each stage. With the 
sun points, the weather controls this completely (unless you have a 
greenhouse of course). With the water points, you have a bit more control, 
but not complete control. If you water your crop one time, with no 
wonderfuls that increase power, then that is one water point. The weather 
still has a part in this because it might rain or drizzle. Here's the 
weather and how many points they give.

Sunny
- Big red sun
- 3 sun points
- All year


Clear
- Small red sun
- 2 sun points
- All year

Cloudy 
- Cloud
- 1 sun point
- All year

Drizzle
- Closed umbrella
- 1 water point
- Spring, Summer, Fall

Rainy
- Open umbrella
- 2 water point
- Spring, Summer, Fall

Snowy
- Snowman
- 2 Water points
- Winter

Hurricane
- Tornado with leaf
- 3 Water points
- Summer
- Can't work on the day

Blizzard
- Pile of snow
- 3 Water points
- Winter 
- Can't work on the day

Also, in previous Harvest Moon's, you could save before the day and see what 
the weather is like the next day. You can't do it in this one because the 
weather is decided 7 days before, so the save and reload method won't work. 
Too bad huh. Oh well. 
Another thing, if you want to know the weather, just talk to Taro, but be 
careful, he'll only say it once. 

Another note, (When will this end?) the weather also changes how much 
stamina is used when using tools. If it is cloudy or clear, no extra 
stamina will be used. If it is sunny or drizzle, 1 point (I think) is added
to the amount of stamina that would have been used. Finally, if it is rainy
or snowy, an extra 2 points (Again, I think) is added to the amount of 
stamina that would
be used.

That's all for the weather, but I might I need to add something else 
later.

Oh yeah. I forgot. With the greenhouse. I sun means 1 sun points. There is a 
maximum of 3 sun holders in a greenhouse so that means a maximum of 3 sun 
points each day.

One more thing. I need to show an example on growing crops.I'm going to use 
a turnip because I can't be stuffed talking about something else longer.

Day 1 
You've sown the seeds and you've watered them once so that's 1 water point. 
It's a clear day so that's 2 points

1 water point + 2 sun points

Day 2
You water them again so that's another water point and it's cloudy so that's 
one extra sun point.

2 water points + 3 sun points

Day 3 
The crop has met all its requirements for the seed stage so it advances to 
the sprout stage. It's a rainy day, but for some unknown reason, you water 
the plants. That is now 3 water points and no sun points.

3 Water points + 0 sun points

Day 4
It's another rainy day, but since you're an idiot, you water them 2 times, 
but don't worry, they won't go bad until they have reached 19 water points. 
You've added another 4 water points.

7 Water points + 0 sun points.

Day 5
It's finally a sunny day so you don't need to do anything else, but 
since you think you have to water the crops everyday, you accidentally water 
them 11 times each. 

18 Water points + 3 sun points.

Day 6 
The crops have reached all the criteria to reach the mature stage, so you 
can now pick them. They're probably going to a B rank or less since the you 
have to get the points as close to the minimum to get them at S-rank. 
Also, if you leave the turnips in the ground for longer, their size 
attribute will rise with each day.

There is now something else I have to say (No comment'). I need to 
explain how 
this is going to be set out so here.

If the crop is a regenerating plant, then the profit chart/table will be a

Spring Crops	[3.01]
------------------------
Okay these are the spring crops. The first types of crops you can grow in 
the game. Yeah whatever, I'll just get on with it.



Turnips

Unlock: At the start of the game
Buy for 120g
Sell:
- 60g average to ship
- 360g S-rank
- 36g to sell to Chen.


Seed Stage
- 3-19 sun points
- 2-19 water points
- 2 days

Sprout Stage
- 3-19 sun points
- 2-19 points
- 2 days

Mature Stage
- Will die if 39 sun points
- Will die if 19 water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 Turnip 			= 60g
maximum harvests 		= 7
8 turnips 			= 480g
bag cost  			= 120g
profit	  		= 360g
profit X 7			= 2520g

(If all 9 turnips, then profit = 2940g )

Turnips are probably the best crop to start off with. They grow quickly, 
don't need as many points as the other crops and they keep a steady flow of 
gold during your first month.



Potato

Unlock: At the start of the game
Buy for 150g
Sell:
- 80g average to ship
- 480g S-rank
- 48g to sell to Chen


Seed Stage
- 4-19 sun points
- 3-19 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage
- 6-27 sun points
- 4-27 water points
- 4 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 9 water points
- Will die if 10 days 

1 Potato 			= 80 g
maximum harvests 		= 4
8 potatoes 	 		= 640g
bag cost  	 		= 150g
profit	  	 	= 490g
profit X 4	 		= 1960g

(If all 9 potatoes, then profit = 2280g )

As you can see, potatoes are significantly harder to grow than turnips and 
you get less money, but if you want to make a potato salad or something to 
do with growing potatoes, go ahead and grow some.



Cucumber
Unlock: 10,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 200g
Sell:- 60g average ship
- 360g S-rank
- 36g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 7-29 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 1
- 5-23 sun points
- 2-7 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 2
- 4-17 sun points
- 2-9 water points
- 2 days

Mature
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 7 water points
- WIll die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 2 once harvested.

1 cucumber 			= 60g
Maximum harvests 		= 10
8 cucumbers 		= 480g
1 bag				= 200g
profit			= 280g
480 X 10 - 200		= 4600g

Now you can see that cucumbers are the best crops are the best so far since 
they give you the most money and they also regrow once they're harvested 
which makes them even better.



Strawberry
Unlock: 20,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 150g
Sell:
- 30g average ship
- 180g S-rank
- 18g sell to Chen


Seed Stage
- 4-9 sun points
- 4-11 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 1
- 9-9 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 2
- 3-5 sun points
- 2-7 water points
- 2 days

Mature
- Will die if 9 sun points
- Will die if 9 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 2 when harvested.

1 strawberry 		= 30g
Maximum harvests 		= 11
8 strawberries		= 240g
1 bag				= 150g
profit			= 90g
240 X 11 - 150		= 2490g 

If you are going to grow this crop without a greenhouse, then hope for good 
weather since in sprout stage 1, you need exactly 9 sun points, so be 
careful. Turnips are better anyway so it doesn't matter as much, (based on 
the maximum harvests)



Cabbage
Unlock: Ship 100 wheat and 40,000+ crop degree points
(With the unlock, you can buy all the wheat from Chen and ship it if you 
have enough money, or you could unlock wheat by shipping 100 turnips, 
potatoes, cucumbers and strawberries.)

Buy for 500g
Sell:
- 350g average ship
- 2100g S-rank
- 210g sell to Chen

Seed stage
- 9-24 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 1
- 12-29 sun points
- 4-11 water points- 5 days

Sprout stage 2
- 12-26 sun points
- 5-15 water points
- 5 days

Mature
- Will die if 9 sun points
- Will die if 9 Water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 cabbage 			= 350g
Maximum harvests		= 2
8 cabbages			= 2800g
1 bag				= 500g
profit			= 2300g
profit X 2			= 4600g
(If all 9 cabbages, then profit = 5300g)

In one month, you get about the same profit as the cucumbers, but you get 
less harvests, but that doesn't matter. Depending on which one you want to 
grow, it doesn't matter that much. (unless you only have cucumbers unlocked.)


Turnips			= 2520g
Potatoes			= 1960g
Cucumbers			= 4600g
Strawberries		= 2490g
Cabbages			= 4600g

As you can probably see, cucumbers and cabbages are the best for the season, 
but you probably won't get them in the first year. For the first year, just 
crow turnips and get some cash flowing in quickly. If you want, you can grow 
some potatoes, but you probably don't want to unless you want the cabbages.





Summer crops	[3.02]
----------------------
Summer crops are pretty good because most of them regenerate their vegetable, 
but you might have to go to the mine or forage for a bit since you can't get 
that much money during the starting days of Summer.


Tomato
Unlock: At the start of the game
Buy for 200g
Sell:
- 60g average to ship
- 360g S-rank
- 36 g sell to Chen


Seed stage 
- 7-24 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 1
- 7-24 sun points
- 2-9 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 2
- 7-19 sun points
- 2-9 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 3
- 9-24 sun points
- 2-11 water points
- 3 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 7 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 3 when harvested.

1 tomato 			= 60g
Maximum harvests		= 7
8 tomatoes			= 480g
1 bag				= 200g
Profit			= 280g
480 X 7 - 200		= 3160g

Tomatoes are a pretty good starting crop. It grows quicker than the previous 
Harvest Moon: Ioh so you should have at least 1 or 2 patches (of 9 of 
course) of this to grow in the first year.  



Corn
Unlock: At the start of the game
Buy for 300g
Sell:
- 100g average to ship
- 600g S-rank
- 60g sell to chen


Seed stage
- 5-19 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 1
- 8-19 sun points
- 4-19 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 2
- 8-24 sun points
- 4-19 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 3
- 8-24 sun points
- 3-15 water points
- 3 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 19 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 3 when harvested

1 corn			= 100g
Maximum harvests		= 6
8 pieces of corn		= 800g
1 bag				= 300g
Profit			= 500g
800 X 6 - 300		= 4500g


Now you can also see that you get more money with corn, but you have to 
remember the weather can change it all. Maybe 2 patches eavh of corn and 
tomatoes are alright. Or maybe, 1 patch of one of them and 2 patches of the 
other one.




Onion

Unlock: Earn 2000+ crop degree points
Buy for 150g
Sell:
- 80g average ship
- 480g S-rank
- 48g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 3-14 sun points
- 3-9 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 1
- 4-29 sun points
- 4-13 water points
- 4 days


Mature stage
- Will die if 14 sun points
- Will die if 9 water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 onion			= 80g
Maximum harvests		= 4
8 onions			= 640g
1 bag				= 150g
Profit			= 490g
Profit X 4			= 1960g
(If all 9 onions, then profit = 2280g) 


Only grow this crop if you need money at the start of the season since it 
doesn't give you that much money at all.



Pumpkin
Unlock: 10,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 500g
Sell:
- 250g average ship
- 1500g S-rank
- 150g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 12-29 sun points
- 4-11 water points
- 4 days

Sprout stage 1
- 13-39 sun points
- 5-13 water points
- 5 days

Sprout stage 2
- 16-39 sun points
- 5-15 water points
- 5 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 5 water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 pumpkin			= 250g
Maximum harvests		= 2
8 pumpkins  		= 2000g
1 bag				= 500g
Profit			= 1500g
Profit X 2			= 3000g
(If all 9 pumpkins, then profit = 3500g)

Pumpkins are an alright crop to grow. They're better than onions, but you 
have to take into account that if all goes well and you meet the minimum 
amount of days, you'll get the 2 harvests, but you might not because the 
weather might not go in your favour.



Pineapple
Unlock: Ship 100 soybeans
(With this, you can again buy all the soybeans from Chen's shop and then 
ship them, or you could unlock soybeans by shipping 100 tomatoes, pieces of 
corn, onions and pumpkins.)

Buy for 1000g
Sell:
- 700g average to ship 
- 4200g S-rank
- 420g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 12-34 sun points
- 5-15 water points- 5 days
 	
Sprout stage 1
- 12-29 sun points
- 6-19 water points
- 5 days

Sprout stage 2
- 10-34 sun points
- 6-15 water points
- 5 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 10 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 2 after harvest

1 pineapple 		= 700g
Maximum harvests		= 4 		
8 pineapples		= 5600g
1 bag				= 1000g
profit			= 4600g
5600 X 4 - 1000		= 22300g

Pineapples are obviously the best crop for Summer, but take a long time to 
get, unless you sell the soybeans that you bought from Chen's shop. 22300g! 
That's a lot of gold isn't it.


Tomatoes			= 3160g
Corn				= 4500g
Onions			= 1960g
Pumpkins			= 3000g
Pineapples			= 22300g


As you can see here, pineapples beat all the other crops by thousands, but 
that will only happen if the weather works for you. Corn is the next best 
solution and the best thing about it is that it's unlocked at the start of 
the game. Just grow a few patches of it and you'll do alright. If you have a 
greenhouse and you control the weather right, grow pineapples and  
you'll get loads of money. One harvest of S-rank crops will give you around 
33500g! 4 harvests of normal pineapples is even less than this. 33500g! 



Fall		[3.03]
----------------------
The fall crops are also a good crop, but they're sensitive to water, 
especially the yam, and it seems to rain a lot in this season, so be careful 
when growing crops.


Eggplant 
Unlocked: At the start of the game
Buy for 120g
Sell:
- 80g average to ship
- 480g S-rank
- 48g sell to Chen

Seed stage
- 5-22 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 1
- 8-24 sun points
- 4-13 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 2
- 8-24 sun points
- 3-15 water points
- 3 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 9 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Go back to sprout stage 2 when harvested

1 eggplant			= 80g
Maximum harvests		= 8
8 eggplants			= 640g
1 bag				= 120g
Profit			= 520g
640 X 8 -120		= 5000g	

A pretty stable fall crop. Its water limit is pretty high which is good, 
although the sun minimum of points is pretty high, so hope for some sunny 
weather.



Carrot
Unlock: At the start of the game
Buy for 300g
Sell:
- 120g average to ship
- 720g S-rank- 72g sell to Chen


Seed stage 
- 5-19 sun points
- 3-11 water points
- 3 days

Sprout stage 1
- 6-24 sun points
- 4-15 water points
- 4 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 14 sun points
- Will die if 3 water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 carrot			= 120g
Maximum harvests		= 4
8 carrots			= 960g
1 bag				= 300g
Profit			= 660g
Profit X 4			= 2640g
(If all 9 carrots, then profit = 3120g) 

You should grow this crop only if you need some money at the start of the 
month or you need to for the fall crop festival, but otherwise, just grow 
eggplants.



Yam
Unlock: 20,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 300g
Sell:
- 100g average to ship
- 600g S-rank
- 60g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 2-5 sun points
- 1-7 water points
- 1 day
Sprout stage 1
- 3-11 sun points
- 1-3 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 2
- 3-9 sun points
- 1-3 water points
- 2 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 14 sun points
- Will die if 3 water points
- Will die if 10 days.
Go back to sprout stage 2 when harvested

1 yam 			= 100g
Maximum harvests		= 13
8 yams			= 800g
1 bag				= 300g
profit			= 500g
800g X 13 - 300		= 10100g

Yams give you a lot of money , but they are incredibly sensitive to water. I 
mean 3 water points. That's it. 2 rainy days and it's gone. Don't water it 
until the 2nd day if needed just to make sure, but if it works out, that's a 
lot of money.



Spinach
Unlock: 30,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 200g
Sell:
- 80g average to ship
- 480g S-rank
- 48g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 2-9 sun points
- 2-7 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage
- 3-11 sun points
- 2-7 water points
- 3 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 9 sun points
- Will die if 3 water points
- Will die if 10 days

1 spinach			= 80g
Maximum harvests		= 6
8 spinach			= 640g
1 bag				= 200g
Profit			= 440g
Profit X 6			= 2640g
(If all 9 spinach, then profit = 3120g)

Spinach is a little more secure than yams, and need less requirements than 
eggplants and carrots, but don't give enough money. Grow them if you want, 
but you probably don't really want to if you want the money.



Bell pepper
Unlock: 60,000+ crop degree points and ship 100 buckwheat

Buy for 150g
Sell:
- 80g average to ship
- 480g S-rank
- 48g sell to Chen


Seed stage
- 5-17 sun points
- 2-9 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 1
- 3-9 sun points
- 1-5 water points
- 1 day

Sprout stage 2
- 4-11 sun points

- 2-15 water points
- 2 days

Sprout stage 3
- 4-11 sun points
- 1-15 water points
- 2 days

Mature stage
- Will die if 19 sun points
- Will die if 9 water points
- Will die if 10 days
Return to sprout stage 3 when harvested

1 bell pepper 		= 80g
Maximum harvests		= 12
8 bell peppers		= 640g
1 bag				= 150g
Profit			= 490g
640 X 12 - 150		= 7530g

A pretty big amount of money. I'd choose the bell peppers over yams because 
the maximum amounts of water and sun points are a bit higher.


Eggplants			= 5000g
Carrots			= 2640g
Yams				= 10100g
Spinach			= 2640g
Bell pepper			= 7530g

The best here is the yams, but they are very sensitive to water which is 
dangerous. The bell peppers aren't that too far behind and they're a bit 
safer to grow. Eggplants are a good starter crop and carrots and spinach 
give you the same amount of money, but spinach have a less minimum point 
requirement so they're a bot easier to grow.



Grain crops		[3.04]
------------------------
All grain crops need some task to be accomplished before they are unlocked 
except for grass. The other grain crops (Rice, Wheat, Soybeans and 
Buckwheat) all need to be harvested with a sickle with a yellow wonderful 
attached which costs 4000g at Chen's shop.

Also, with rice, it needs to be grown on Rice island which can be unlocked 
by unlocking link island (3 sun stones) , unlocking rice island (5 sun 
stones) and then buying 2 30,000g bridges to connect the two. Also take 
note in the long time the crops need to grow. All the grain crops except 
for grass and wheat will still be alive during Winter, but they will become
dormant [Not growing]. All the other grain crops die in Winter.

As you can see, grass is not grown for selling. It's to grow fodder for the 
cows and sheep or to let them graze.



Rice
Just a quick note, you don't need to water these crops because surprise, 
surprise, its already got it's own water source and no, you can't grow any 
other crops here, but it would be really convenient.

Edamame is more profitable by a small amount than raw soybeans so I would go
with this money wise if you don't have the Thresher maker or the Flour mill.

I don't really know what to say about this. I don't have that much to 
say other than it's probably the best crop for growing if you have a 
small amount of time.



Trees			[3.05]
------------------------
Trees are crops that will produce fruit in a specific season if grown 
properly and they will only go dormant during Winter and will come back into
 action in the first of Spring. 

To grow trees, you must unlock Link island and then Fruit island and build a
bridge between link island and fruit island (considering you already have 
built 1 between your ranch and link island) 

You can buy the seeds from Chen's shop and you can only get the peach and 
apple seeds at the start, but later on, you can get the Orange, Banana and 
grape seeds.

If there is something like a blizzard or hurricane, your tree might get 
knocked down, so you're going to want to build a fence around it. To build a
fence around it, throw a piece of lumber, stone material or golden lumber 
and it will automatically create a fence. Each type of material will protect
the tree against a number of bad weather days. 
Here it is:
Lumber: 			1 day of protection  
Stone material:  		3 days of protection
Golden lumber: 		Unlimited protection

Peach
Unlock: Raise Fruit Island
Buy for 2000g

Mature 

- Cannot die in this stage.

In Summer
Fruit stage (After flower stage)
Produce 1 peach when:
- 4-29 sun points
- 4-15 water points
Only during Summer

The first fruit. Probably better than apples by the money, but like all 
trees, it takes a long time to grow.



Apple
Unlock: Raise Fruit Island
Buy for 1000g 
Sell:
- 100g average to ship
- 600g S-rank
- 60g sell to Chen

- Cannot die at this stage

In Fall
Fruit stage (After flower stage)
Produce 1 apple when:
- 4-19 sun points
- 5-29 water points
- 2 days
Only during Fall

Peaches are probably than apples, but you might as well grow some apples, 
for the money and cooking.



Grape

Buy for 1700g
Sell:
- 200g average to ship

- Cannot die at this stage

In Fall
Fruit stage (After flower stage)
Produce 2 Grapes when:
- 10-39 sun points
- 10-49 water points
- 3 days
Only during Fall

I don't even know why it's 3 days and 10 sun points. That's impossible! 
Anyway, the growth rate is pretty slow (I mean the fruit stage) since it 
takes around 4 days to get 2 grapes, but it's still better than the apples 
and peaches.



Banana
Unlock: Raise fruit island and earn 20,000+ crop degree points
Buy for 2000g 
Sell:
- 300g average to ship

In Spring
Flower stage
- 7-59 sun points

Mature stage
- Cannot die at this stage

In Summer
Fruit stage (After flower stage)
Produce 1 banana when:
- 4-29 sun points
- 2-15 water points
- 3 days
Only during Summer

If you haven't noticed, banana's are really sensitive to water so, like 
Fogu says, you should plant them in an area you have mentally noted the 
locations of the water sensitive trees to show that you don't need to water 
them as much as the others.



Orange

In Summer
Fruit stage (After flower stage)
Produce 2 oranges when:
- 4-19 sun points
- 6-23 water points
- 3 days
Only during Summer

Oranges are slightly better due to the fact that they grow 2 oranges each 
harvest and they give you 200g each.
