Growth Time Variable

A Mushroom Tree is a tree that spawns according to a rare event in Fall. It can be chopped down using an axe and will drop 5-6 Red or Purple Mushrooms (plus one for the stem). It does not yield seeds when shaken or chopped down, but it will spread seeds like a common tree. If unobstructed, seeds spread by a Mushroom Tree have a 20% chance to grow to the next stage each day during Spring, Summer, or Fall. During Winter, Mushroom Tree seeds/saplings do not grow, and fully-grown Mushroom Trees will be reduced to a stump. The following Spring, the stump will regrow to a full tree. Like common trees, the stump may spread seeds to the surrounding area. If hit by lightning, a Mushroom Tree will be reduced to a stump, leaving mushrooms behind, in the same way that common trees leave wood/sap.

Obtaining the first Mushroom Tree is a random event that can only happen in the Fall. On each day of Fall there is a 5% chance of a spawning event being triggered. When triggered, the game engine will choose 10 farm tiles at random. If any of those ten tiles have a fully grown, untapped common tree (or tree stump), then that tree will transform into a Mushroom Tree (or Mushroom Stump). If a mushroom stump is spawned, it will grow into a Mushroom Tree, but not until the following Spring.

A Mushroom Tree can be tapped with a tapper. It yields Red Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, and Common Mushroom when tapped, except during the Winter. During Winter, the Tapper will remain on the tree, despite the tree itself being replaced by a stump. The following Spring, the tapper may need to be removed and immediately replaced on the Mushroom Tree before it will produce mushrooms. While tappers will remain on stumps, they cannot be placed on stumps during the Winter.

A Mushroom Tree can also be grown from a Mushroom Tree Seed. These seeds do not fall from Mushroom Trees when shaken or chopped - they can only be obtained from Qi's Walnut Room.

Tapper Product

The time until harvest depends on the season in which the tapper is placed: 6000 minutes in Spring or Summer, 3000 minutes in Fall, and 80000 minutes in Winter. The exception to this occurs after harvesting a Purple Mushroom; the time until the next harvest will always be 3000 minutes. (The lengthy processing time in Winter is the reason that the tapper may need to be removed and replaced on Spring 1).

The type of mushroom for the first harvest is determined by the season in which the tapper is placed: Common Mushroom in Spring or Summer, Red Mushroom in Fall.

The type of subsequent mushrooms produced is determined by a combination of the type, date, and season of the mushroom previously harvested. When a Common or Red Mushroom is harvested on the 10th or 20th day of a season, the next time it will produce a Purple Mushroom; when a Purple Mushroom is harvested, the next time it will produce a Red Mushroom. When a Common Mushroom is harvested on a day other than the 10th or 20th, the next time it will produce a Common Mushroom; when a Red Mushroom is harvested on a day other than the 10th or 20th, the next time it will produce a Red Mushroom if harvested in Fall, otherwise, the next time it will produce a Common Mushroom.

Below is a table summarizing what mushroom the tapper will produce after a harvest:

Mushroom Cap Hat

The Mushroom Cap is a unique hat that has a 1% chance to drop from Mushroom Trees when they are chopped down.
