Sun Haven – Best Crops To Plant (Updated)

A magical farming fantasy, Sun Haven takes the best of Stardew Valley and mashes it up with a gorgeous fantasy RPG. This farming and life sim game works like most of the other games in the series except for the fact that everything is magical. Which is exactly my jam. You can farm, fish, cook, mine, craft, make friends and of course fall in love.

In this guide, we’ll be getting into the main basis of a farming sim – crop planting. How farming works, how to increase your crop yield and of course maximise your profits. You can either sell crops as they are, which is what we’re going to focus on or wait until you have a cooking pot to make more expensive items to sell. We suggest doing a bit of both until your farm is more established.

Right now Sun Haven is out on Early Access so some of this information is up for change. Rest assured that we’ll do our best to keep things updated. Without further ado let’s get into it.

Update Disclaimer 2nd March 2022: Sun Haven is still in Early Access and as such new updates have caused changes to the previous information. This article now has the adjusted prices as well as the addition of new crops as of this date.


Sun Haven Crops

Begin your farming journey by purchasing seeds at the General Store from Emmett. Make sure to keep an eye out for sale items that change every day.

Take note as well that this is the base price of the crop and does not include any multiplier effects from rarity or crop yield increase. The lists are written from most profitable to least with regards to seed price, sale price and growth time.

Tomato5 Days8065
Wheat3 Days4028
Potatoes (x2)5 Days10080
Corn (x2)6 Days8055
Greenroot3 Days6065

Okay so as you can see Pepper gets right up there and while it does yield a lot of profit it does require some heavy capital investment to grow but is worth having. In terms of profit margin, Pepper reigns supreme.

But the best crop to plant for some sure and steady growth and profit has got to be Rice. It nets a very modest profit for its investment price. That coupled with its shorter growth time makes it one of the most profitable crops out there. Next up would be Onion.

You’re still going to want to plant the other crops for a variety of ingredients to cook and gift etc. But if you’re planting Greenroot it’s definitely not for gold.


Withergate Crops

So Withergate crop profits are a little different from that of Sun Haven. Mainly because you buy the seeds in gold but sell the crops for Withergate tickets. The main form of currency in Withergate. You can use these tickets to buy Cosmetic Costume Armour or Furniture as well as an Apartment Suite.

In this case, the basic profit measurements don’t work out the same but we’ve done our best by assigning a value to the tickets and working out a more measurable profit.

Tombmelon2 Days3607

Moonplant5 Days2508
Eggplant4 Days56013
Kraken Kale3 Days1154

At first glance, it seems that the Demon Orb that’s going to net you the best tickets for the time spent. Unfortunately, it does come at a high price so unless you have a lot of capital this is going to be a bit difficult. If you are short on gold then Tombmelons are going to be your best bet.


Nel’Vari Crops

Nel’Vari is another place in Sun Haven where you can obtain special crops and animals. This place is the home of the Elves and other creatures such as Plant Amari, faeries, and tree guardians. It is also home to Nivara, the World Dragon.

As in Withergate, only Nel’Vari-based crops can be grown here. Seeds can be purchased in the Nel’Vari General Store and sold for Mana Orb. The currency being used in this town. Growing 10 or more of certain crops will attract small creatures to your alcoves.

Mana Gem8 Days180033
Cat Tail7 Days120024

Begin by purchasing your crops from the Nel’Vari General Store. If you’re interested in making Mana Orb then Acorns are the crop for you! Followed by Shiiwalki Mushrooms and Walk Choy. Be sure to get some Elemental Seeds in there as well.


Increase Crop Price

The list above is a base guide on the game’s selling price but that can go up depending on the rarity of your crop. The rarer, the more of a multiplier it will have on the price when you sell it.

Right now in Sun Haven, there are four rarity levels: Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and Diamond.

  • EmeraldCommon – Base price (no multiplier)
  • RubyRare – 1.1x price multiplier
  • SapphireEpic – 1.2x price multiplier
  • Diamond Legendary – 1.3x price multiplier

Improve your crops using passive Global Skills that will increase the quality and number produced. You can do this by using Fertilizer or by increasing your Farming Skill.


Other Farming Tips

Buying seeds are for chumps! Use your scythe on weeds and grass to get yourself some free seeds. I’m just kidding you’ll probably still need to buy crops to plant, but this is a good tip anyway. Clearing weeds and grass also has a chance to drop tickets, the currency used in Withergate.

The second tip is to buy seeds on sale. The general store and seed stall in Withergate offer two different seed types a day at a discounted price. You can purchase up to 20 seeds per stack at the General Store and up to 30 seeds at the Withergate seed stall.


Sun Haven is one of the best farming sims for you to check out if you love Stardew Valley. The game is now available on Early Access on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux.
