To grow crops in Rune Factory 5, you'll need to buy seeds from Serendipity General Store or Flowerstruck. These stores have a small initial stock that expands as you complete requests or upgrade them at Studio Palmo. After completing a certain request, the stores will stock higher level crops and seeds as you ship them.

There are no season restrictions for when you grow a crop, but there are better or worse times of the year to plant certain things.


Growing Crops

Crops can be planted in the field behind Rigbarth Outpost, or on any of the Farm Dragons. In order to grow successfully, seeds must be watered every day.

After planting a seed, you can check its progress with a magnifying glass. Every morning at 6AM, the hidden days counter is increased by a specified amount. When that value reaches the required growth time of the crop, the crop will become harvestable. The amount of time it takes a crop to grow can be sped up by using formulas, or if growing on a Farm Dragon, feeding the dragon an Earth Crystal.

Crop Level

New crops begin at level 1 and can be raised to level 10. Higher level crops sell at higher prices, make higher level food and medicine, and have stronger effects when fed to monsters. Stores will stock the highest level crop/seed that you have shipped. You can ship either the crop or the seed and the appropriate store will then carry both the crop and the seeds of that level.

Store crop and seed levels only rise if you ship crops that you yourself have raised.

Raising Crop Levels

To raise crop levels you'll want to obtain and plant higher level seeds. To do this, use a sickle on a fully grown (100% [Grw.]) crop. You should get a seed that is 1 level higher than the crop was. You can plant this seed or ship it; if you ship it before 8:00 AM, then you will be able to buy another of the same level on the same day.

Note that low-level crops often leave behind higher level seeds when harvested. If you plant half a a field of level 1 turnips, you will likely get many level 2 turnip seeds after harvesting them. Additionally, as your soil quality improves (a natural process that occurs as you harvest crops), your regularly watered crops will sometimes grow to be be a higher level than the seed you planted. This will allow you to skip several levels at once, especially for long-growing crops. Soil quality can be improved by using Greenifier and Greenifier+ on it.

Giant Crops

The basic steps of growing giant produce are simple. First, plant 4 of the same crop onto a marked 2x2 plot of land. Then, sprinkle Giantizer on these crops. Water the crops every day until they are fully grown, and then after an extra day or two they will merge into a single gigantic crop.

Crops planted out-of-season are harder to giantize than crops planted in-season. Plants have an easier time giantizing on high quality soil; you can give soil a quality boost (up to +2.00%) with Greenifier or using Earth Crystals. Maximum soil quality raises permanently as you harvest crops. It may also help to restore the HP of your soil and/or plant with Withered Grass, Corn, or Clover.

Starfall Crops

First introduced in Rune Factory 5, Starfall Crops are a new type of giant crop that can only be grown from Starfall Seeds. Meteor seeds can only be obtained by mining meteorites, which can be found the day after the extremely rare Star Shower weather.

Most wild crops will, once shipped, appear for sale at one or more of the town vendors . No matter what level wild crop you ship, shops will always sell level 1 wild crops. There are 3 crops you can never buy: Monarch Mushroom, Mealy Apple, and Ayngondaia Lawn.
