I have a heartier appetite than that.

Berries are Fruit Food Items that can be found on Berry Bushes. Berries restore 9.375 Hunger Meter.png when eaten, take 3-5 days to grow (rain affects growth), and take 6 days to spoil.

Roasted Berries[]

Well, now I have hot berries.

Walter, when examining Roasted Berries.

Roasted Berries are made by cooking Berries over any Fire. They restore 1 Health Meter.png and 12.5 Hunger Meter.png. Roasted Berries spoil twice as fast as regular Berries. Therefore, one shouldn't cook all berries at once (unless rotting), and instead, cook only the amount that will be eaten.

Both Berries and Roasted Berries can be used as ingredients in the Crock Pot, and count as half Fruit value.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • Berries are excellent filler ingredients for recipes in the Crock Pot since they do not produce many dishes on their own.
  • Berry Bushes are very common in Grasslands making Berries a good source of food at the beginning of the game.
  • It's advisable not to pick too many berries while exploring, as carrots have faster picking animation than berries and will take more time to spoil.
  • Berry Bushes will not regrow picked berries during Winter.
  • Gobblers will eat Berries from Berry Bushes that have not yet been picked during the day time (or anywhere else they can find them).
  • Berries can be used as bait in Traps to catch Rabbits.
  • Manure can be farmed by leaving large stacks of Berries near Pig Houses. The Pigs will eat the Berries over time and turn it into Manure.
    • In absence of Pigs, Berries can be cooked to make them spoil faster to obtain Rot, to be used for fertilization.
  • In the Hamlet DLC, the price of berries at Swinesbury's Fine Grocers is 1 Oinc, and they can be sold in town for 4 Oincs. Purchasing them whenever they become available ensures a small, steady stream of income.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Wickerbottom states that berries are from an Ardisia crenata plant. These berries, while unconfirmed, are suspected to be poisonous.
  • Berries may be more specifically based on Redcurrants, because of the close proximity to each other on their stem and edibility.
