Grown on sand from Onion Seeds.

How to obtain:

  • Plant Onion Seeds in a sandy area. Water it immediately, and water it again each time it changes size. Harvest once the option appears.

Unlike the other vegetables, if you over water onions they do not die. It appears that watering onions resets their growth timer, making it take longer for the onion to reach the next stage of growth. (see discussion for details)



Onion yield seems to be entirely location based, with different players achieving the same yield at the same location regardless of gender, avatar, or time of day. Onion yield has been shown to be halved when there are others nearby. The minimum yield per onion harvest is 4. The highest recorded onion growing location is the Magic Onion Patch (see discussion) discovered by Sonny at (-30, -1975) which yields 19 per seed.

Update: 24 onions per seed at (-80, -545) in Khmun.
