Most Profitable Crop by Time
There are several threads on the most profitable crop over an unlimited amount of time and I will not rehash the benefits of Black Currant.
I created this spreadsheet and thread to discuss which crop to plant if you have a specific amount of time (3 hrs, 10 hrs, 12 hrs, 2 days, etc.) that you know you will not be playing Farm Story and you want to make the most coin in your absence.
Therefore I submit for your review:
The most profitable crop by number of hours is highlighted in yellow.
Cool story bro.
Pretty obvious that the crop you get @ a higher level will give the most profit of the same time requirement.
The most profitable is just Black Currant.
But not everyone checks the game every 4 hours.
So from the chart you can see that the most profitable crop if you will not be replanting for 4 days is red quinoa, 2 or 3 days spinach, 1 day potato, 8-16 hours is broccoli, 6 hours is cabbage, 4 hours is black currant, and 3 is carrot.
yep I just wanted to get it on paper and share with the farmers....

More than that, if we can get on the game several times a day, and do it for 3 days, it is for sure that the profit which you do several times a day, is more than the 3-days-crop. So I think people who actually likes the game, and love to play with it, just don't plant those 2 3 4 days corps, or you'll get stuck on it, everytime you get on the game, you can do nothing, but just wait till the time to come. That is no fun at all. Base on that, the most profit corp, have to be calculated base on how many times gamer can get on the game everyday.

Hi players & neighbors !
I've just made a FarmStory layer with each item profitability...
You should update the sheet since there is some new crops around. By far the Cantaloupe is now the best crop for money!

... the rest of the story!
There's more to consider than profitability. How about this? Wait too long to collect your crop and it withers away, you get nothing. If you want, say, 12 hours leeway to collect a crop after it matures, you need a crop that matures in no less than 12 hours. So, tomatoes (yield 4 to 1 return) is a good choice. Takes 16 hours to mature, so you have roughly 16 hours to collect after maturity.
