When you’re buying a sapling, consider the 28 days that it will take for the tree to fully grow before it bears a new fruit each day. If it’s Summer, consider planting one of the Fall saplings as by the time it’s the appropriate season and it’s fully grown, you will be able to reap the fruits. For another example, if you want to buy an Orange Sapling, make sure it’s the beginning of Spring and you plant it right away to give it the time to give you a profit all through Summer. Also keep in mind that you’ll need the tiles surrounding the tree to be free for the sapling to grow. That’s eight tiles all around that need to be empty.
Now that you know when it’s appropriate to buy the saplings and plant them, get that daily income from the fruits! If you need any other help with Stardew Valley, check out our wiki!
