Valheim has quite a few seeds that players can plant to grow crops. Here are the best ones to look out for.

Once warriors are able to craft bronze, they'll find themselves in a whole new technological age with several useful advancements. One of these is the Cultivator, allowing warriors to till the land around them, prepare it for seeds, and use those seeds to grow food. There are a few things to keep in mind while farming, however: chief among them being exactly what to plant.

Valheim Seed Guide: Best Seeds to Plant

Put simply: the best seeds to plant are the ones that grow food. Food is a vital resource in Valheim that directly affects a warrior's stamina and health. It allows them to run further and survive longer in combat encounters. Currently, there are only two seeds that grow food: carrots and turnips.

Carrot seeds can be found in the Black Forest biome. They are marked by their thin stems and white, dandelion-like appearance. This should make them easy to spot in the biome's heavily shaded terrain. Each seed bears one carrot in just under three days.

Once grown, Carrots can be used to tame boars or encourage them to breed, be eaten raw in a pinch, and turned into high-quality Carrot Soup using a Cauldron.

Turnip seeds are found in the Swamp biome and may be difficult to spot due to its eerie lighting and ambiance. Each Turnip seed bears one Turnip within just under three days. Afterward, turnips can be fed to boars to tame them or encourage them to breed, be eaten raw, and turned into Turnip Stew using a Cauldron.

Hearth and Home, the first major DLC, is expected to expand the farming system and possibly allow a wider variety of crops in the future.
