Crop Growing Times

Don't waste your money on anything less than quality soil as this just adds to grow time as well as the number of times needed to be watered.

I most times can't remember the growing times as is the same with most new players. There are a lot of players give up after crops die too often. Also I have gotten a lot of miss information from players who say to water at odd hours. The watering time is within 24 hours. Right now wiki says to just give the crop a pull to check if they are ready to pick. This will not do as a lot of players can't just tug on crops every few hours. The Farmers Almanac only tells how long since planted and how long since last watered.

BTW Quality Soil sold in Cubit Store is actually called Great Soil but for some reason CC doesn't really care to make changes that don't affect their economy.

All times listed below are in Quality Soil.

1. Tomatoes - 30 hours
2. Potatoes - 45 hours
3. Corn - 60 hours
4 Eggplant - 80 hours
5. Wheat - 120 hours

    Check on the spoiler in "Crop Info", it shows you the exact growth time and more.
    I would advice you to get the almanac as soon as possible so you won't have to pull on your crops to see if the are ready.

    Thank you but the link is not quite complete as tomatoes give the time and the rest just say how many days. I do have the almanac but times (hours) would be great and not just days in the provided post.

    I changed this post from asking for help, to giving the actual growing times for crops in Quality Soil (Great Soil).
    This link also gives more information on crops. http://forums2.cubiccastles.com/index.php?p=/discussion/16549/farmers-almanac/p1

    Why would you need to pull on crops to know if they're ready? Don't they change their color when they're ready? (Ex. Tomatoes have red dots that appear on them)

    Well, one reason would be color blindness. I am color blind and I have met about 6 players who are also color blind. Just the fact that CC does NOT give exact grow times is one reason I posted this. CC just gives a general time in days and most crops are not down to the hour like 24, 48, 72 etc. This is one reason players suffer losses and another is watering times vary depending on who you ask ingame. I also cannot tell if crops have been watered by the tint CC says there is supposed to be on the soil if watered.

    The Almanac should also give time till pick in addition to the time since planted and time last watered. Our loss is CC's gain as we would have to buy more seeds if crops die.

    CC knows all crop growing times as this information is written in the game code so why not let us know this information instead of being so vague on the time? Remember we are dealing with very young children and some have not yet learned how to multiply by 6 yet.

    I also cannot tell if Yumberries or Frostberries have been picked or even which is which on my farm unless seperated and marked.

    So now when I plant crops, I post a sign telling pick time as I no longer need to water by cans. Then I set an alarm with my Alexa device so I know when to pick.

    Do you not need to water immediately? or can i water like tomatoes once at hour 12-15 and it be ready at hour 30? as long as each watering is within 24 hours i guess? and they wont wither if already full grown? remember i'm just asking not confirmed yet.

    crops should be on a 20 to 24 hour cycle not a 15 but its probably ok at 15 being 15*2 is 30 and 15*3 is 45 etc. if they no longer have a chance to wither after being full grown its probably ok. can someone test this if they haven't already?

    I wouldn't mind leaving a field of full grown crops if timing of harvesting had to be put off and besides it would look better to visit a farm with full grown crops than acres of withered crops. wouldn't you think?

    Once crops are fully matured, you can just leave them and not pick them if you want to see 500 corn. I did for 4047 hours till I decided to shoot for One Million Recubes. I am at 850k + now.

    Crops grow faster in quality soil but the cc store doesn't call them that for some weird reason.

    Crops grow time is what it is & I really doubt the devs will ever change anything about farming because there is no profit for them to do it.

    In Quality soil grow times are not so bad & farming is so much better with sprinklers. I find things to do and come back when they are fully grown. I mostly grow corn because it is the best profit mostly because the seeds are way less than wheat and 2 crops can be grown in the 120 hours wheat takes. I do grow other crops as I need them to cook decoration foods I sell.
