A Stardrop is a special item that permanently increases the player's maximum energy by 34 points. The player must immediately consume any Stardrop as soon as it is obtained; it is impossible to add a Stardrop to the player inventory or save it to eat later.

A maximum of seven Stardrops are available in any game, which together result in 508 maximum energy, nearly doubling the initial value of 270.


Only one Stardrop can be obtained from each of the following sources:


When consumed, one of two possible texts is displayed, both referencing the "Favorite Thing" set at the beginning of the game:

  • "It's strange, but the taste reminds you of [Favorite Thing]."
  • "Your mind is filled with thoughts of [Favorite Thing]."

If the "Favorite Thing" is set to anything containing "Stardew":
Note that the "S" in "Stardew" must be capitalized.


  • Willy mentions a Stardrop in his story at the Feast of the Winter Star. He says that some people claim the Stardrop is somehow connected to the Winter Star that is only visible from Stardew Valley.
  • Prior to version 1.3 a Stardrop could be taken into inventory and then placed in a Chest, gifted (as a universally hated gift) or used in the Grange Display at the Stardew Valley Fair, or sold in the shipping bin. As of v1.3, a stardrop obtained using the item ID glitch can still be sold in the shipping bin in PC or mobile versions of the game.
