Stardew Valley players are often limited by seasons when planting crops. But with the greenhouse, you can grow crops that are out of season

However, the greenhouse only offers 120 tiles to plant. With this limit, you must properly plan what to plant to maximize your profit. As a result, you may get overwhelmed with what you should grow inside the greenhouse.

Therefore, we ranked the 8 best crops for greenhouse in Stardew Valley for your convenience. These crops give the most profit when grown inside the greenhouse.



Cranberries Greenhouse

Seed Source: Pierre’s General Store
Seed Price: 240g

Seed Price: 100–2,500g

Aside from turning them into Coffee using Keg, Coffee Beans can also be profitable as greenhouse crops.

Unlike the other standard crops, you can directly plant Coffee Beans into the soil. You do not need a Seed Maker for them.

It only takes 10 days for a Coffee Bean to grow. After that, it will regrow every 2 days. Every plant gives 4 coffee beans per harvest.

Strawberries are more profitable than Cranberries because of their lower seed price. But you can only buy them once a year, which limits their accessibility.
