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, Carrot, Pumpkin, Eggplant, Pomegranate, Durian, Dragon Fruit, Watermelon (Reign of GiantsReign of Giants icon and ShipwreckedShipwrecked icon only), or Sweet Potato (ShipwreckedShipwrecked icon only) (see Farming for further information). Birds, Tallbirds, Smallish Tallbirds, Smallbirds, and Pigs can eat Seeds and will pick Seeds up if they find them on the ground. Seeds can be used to bait Bird Traps.

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.

Birds only like uncooked seeds

Birds attracted to Seeds but not Toasted Seeds.

When planted in a farm, Seeds have the following chances to grow in to each type of crop:

Toasted SeedsEdit

Toasted Seeds are made by cooking Seeds over a CampfireFire Pit or Star. Unlike their raw counterpart, they restore 1 point of Health and cannot be planted or fed to birds. They also spoil four times faster than uncooked seeds.

Reign of Giants icon Reign of GiantsEdit

In the Reign of Giants, Seeds can be gained by destroying 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.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve Together Edit

In Don't Starve Together, feeding Seeds to a bird in a Birdcage will spawn Guano with a 33% chance, instead of fresh Seeds. Canaries also occasionally drop Seeds when flying away.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • 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 or even spoiled seed left over from last season may be found. Crows and Snowbirds will still eat the Seeds, essentially thinning their numbers.

Mosquito BugsEdit

  • If the Seeds are dropped on the Walrus Camp (during Spring-Autumn), they will get stuck and prevent the player from picking them up.
  • Birds may still drop seeds in Winter after the Home Sea Home update in the Shipwrecked DLC.
