In Stardew Valley, players will want to grow bananas if they hope to complete their shipping and cooking collections. Unfortunately, bananas are the last in-game fruit players can obtain, and growing them requires unlocking a tropical island and finding a banana sapling to grow into a tree. To unlock the tropical Ginger Island, players will need to first complete the Community Center and donate the required materials to repair a boat for the local fisherman, Willy.
Once players can travel to Ginger Island in Stardew Valley using Willy’s boat, they can purchase a banana sapling at the Island Trader for 5 Dragon Teeth or find one as a random drop in a Golden Coconut when the coconut is cracked open. To unlock the Island Trader, players will need to spend 10 Golden Coconuts after unlocking the farmhouse home on Ginger Island. Finally, players can find the Dragon Teeth at the Volcano Dungeon by killing a Lava Lurk with a 15% drop rate or finding it in the skeleton of a long-deceased dragon.
Once players find a banana sapling, they will need to plant it and wait 28 in-game days for the tree to be fully grown. Once grown, the tree will only produce bananas in the summer season in Stardew Valley at a rate of one per day. Therefore, players will either need to wait for the summer season to harvest the fruit from the tree or plant it on their farm on Ginger Island, where it is always summer. Alternatively, players can plant the tree in their greenhouse, where it will spawn fruit all year. Additionally, if players build a Fish Pond and fill it with Blue Discus, they will have a 5-15% chance of receiving a banana daily once the pond’s population reaches four.
Uses for a Banana in Stardew Valley
Players will need the harvested bananas to cook the recipe for Banana Pudding, which also requires milk and sugar. The milk can be obtained from the player’s cows or goats, while the sugar can be milled or purchased from Pierre’s shop. The recipe in Stardew Valley for Banana Pudding can be purchased from the Island Trader in exchange for 30 Bone Fragments. Of note, there is an in-game achievement to cook every recipe.
Additionally, players can use a banana in Emily’s sewing machine at her home along with some cloth to create Relaxed Fit Pants. Of note, players will only be permitted to use Emily’s sewing machine once they have obtained a cloth, which Emily may send players in the mail. Furthermore, the sewing machine is only accessible during the day when the house is open. Players can also use a banana in the yellow dye pot in the sewing room if they are dyeing clothing items or outfits in Stardew Valley.
Bananas can also be gifted to the residents of Pelican Town, with Demetrius, Elliot, Harvey, Jodi, Kent, Leah, Linus, Pam, Robin, Sandy, and Shane liking the fruit. However, players should avoid giving bananas to Abigail, Haley, Jas, and Vincent as they dislike the gift. While the Wizard does not have a particular affinity for bananas, ten bananas are required to purchase the Island Obelisk from the Wizard’s Tower, which will teleport the player to Ginger Island.
Finally, bananas can be used to activate a shrine on Ginger Island, located to the left of the staircase that leads to Leo’s house. When players set a banana on the Stardew Valley Banana Shrine, the torches light, and a gorilla appears to gift the player three Golden Walnuts.
