–Wilson Seeds are a Food item commonly left on the ground in Summer by Birds. While they can be eaten, Seeds are primarily used for Farming by planting them in a farm plot to grow crops. When planted, Seeds have a chance to grow into Corn (32%), Carrot (32%), Pumpkin (11%), Eggplant (11%), Watermelon (11%) ( RoG only), Pomegranate (5%), Durian (5%), or Dragon Fruit (5%) ( see ). Birds, Farming for further information Tallbirds, Smallish Tallbirds, Smallbirds, and Pigs can eat Seeds and will pick Seeds up if they find them on the ground.
If the temperature is 0 or below (which currently only happens during
Winter), seeds that have been planted will stop growing and cannot be forced to grow via Fertilizer.
DST, feeding Seeds to a bird in a Birdcage will spawn Guano with a 25% chance, instead of unspoiled Seeds. Due to the fact, Caves are not implemented yet, this is the only way to gain Guano in DST.
Birds attracted to Seeds but not Toasted Seeds.
Toasted Seeds Edit
Toasted Seeds are made by cooking Seeds over a Campfire, Fire Pit or Star. Unlike their raw counterpart, they restore 1 point of Health and cannot be planted or fed to birds.
Reign of Giants Edit
, Seeds can be gained by destroying Reign of Giants Tumbleweed. This means the player can acquire seeds during Winter. Players can also farm Watermelons by planting them in a Farm or Improved Farm, like all the other crops.
This method keeps seeds fresh.
If fed to a bird in a Birdcage, it will produce fresh Seeds, therefore allowing the player to keep Seeds for as long as they want without rotting.
Pigs don't produce manure by eating seeds.
No seeds are 'dropped' by birds in the Winter, but the occasional stale seed left over from Summer may be found.
