Methods to find tomato seeds in Palworld

There are three reliable options for getting tomato seeds in Palworld.

  • Drops from certain enemies.
  • Purchases from merchants.
  • Catching specific Pals.

If you’re aiming not to spend a penny, we’d recommend fighting enemies for a chance at this item. But Pals offer a higher chance of getting tomato seeds in Palworld. Your other option is to seek out merchants. Note that Black Marketeer merchants won’t be selling them, but normal traveling merchants or vendors in settlements will have a chance to do so.

They’ll also refresh their inventories from time to time. The Wandering Merchants of the Desiccated Desert and Fisherman’s Point are good places to start though. Tomatoes cost 150 Gold while Tomato Seeds cost 200 Gold.

And as you build your Paldeck, you can find Pals that have a chance of dropping tomato seeds. The following Pals can drop tomato seeds in Palworld:

  • Broncherry – Can be found near the Ascetic Falls and Deep Bamboo fast travel points.
  • Dinossom Lux – Can be found near the Duneshelter fast travel point. Watch out for the level 47 Alpha Pal variant in the Dessicated Desert region when you go through the Furthest Mineshaft.
  • Mossanda – Can be found near the Mossanda Forest fast travel point (of course).
  • Vaelet – I’d recommend trying to get tomato seeds from other Pals because this one’s a Field Alpha Boss.
  • Wumpo Botan – This one is another Field Alpha Boss that appears at the Wilderness at Level 38 and has a one-hour respawn cooldown. It can be found in the Wilderness Sanctuary 2 near the Forgotten Island fast travel point. Head southwest and you should find it.

All options are fairly easy strategies once you’ve done some exploration but we recommend going for Pals. Of course, when you’ve gotten far enough on the technology tree, you can also unlock a tomato plantation box, which will allow you to grow your own from then on.

Did you know?

You can unlock the tomato plantation at level 34 on the tech tree. Like other plantation boxes, pals with the right skills can then automatically plant, water, and harvest tomatoes for you.

It’s a solid alternatives to berry plantations and hunting for lettuce seeds. Here’s what you can make with tomatoes, a recipe, a Cooking Pot, and a Kindling Pal in Palworld:
