Best way to harvest Strawberry in Stardew Valley

The best way to grow Strawberry is to get three harvests by using Speed-Gro and planting the seeds on the 13th day of Spring. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. On Day 1 of Spring, plant Cauliflowers and Green Beans alongside the already existing Parsnips.
  2. Head to the town on Day 5 between 8 AM and 1 PM to trigger the Community Center cutscene.
  3. This will get you an invitation to visit the Wizard the next day which will then allow you to get rewards from doing bundles.
  4. On Day 6, plant the Potato to have it ready by Day 13.
  5. Once the Cauliflower, Green Beans, Parsnips, and Potato are harvested, it’ll complete the Spring Crops Bundle which will reward you with 20 Speed-Gro.
  6. On the 13th, till the soil and water it along with fertilizing it with the Speed-Gro before 2 PM, and then head to the Egg Festival to buy the Strawberry Seeds.
  7. After returning, plant the seeds and wait for them to grow.
