Giant crops have long been a thing in classic farming games, and Rune Factory 4 Special isn’t shy about bringing the feature back. Giant crops are worth way more money than regular ones and can be used to make a hefty profit. The only issue is that they can be tricky to grow at first.
How do I grow giant crops in Rune Factory 4 Special?
While giant crops may seem like a rare or random occurrence, there is an exact science for growing them in Rune Factory 4 Special. You don’t need to have the best farming tools in the game, or do any hard missions. Simply follow these steps to create giant crops:
- Make 2×2 squares and plant the same type of crop in each of them.
- Use Giantizer on the crops and tend to them each day.
- Once they are fully grown don’t harvest them, they will need a few extra days in the ground to merge into a giant crop.
There are a few additional elements that can affect giant crop growth. High-quality soil is a big player in growing a giant crop, so make your square on parts of the field that have sz+. You should also only plant crops that are in season, as out-of-season crops have a much harder time growing.
