If you’re here, you’re probably a little curious about the different types of seeds and produce you can grow in your Island Sanctuary. There’s really nothing else to say but, uhh, “Let’s grow!”.
Updated Jan 17 ’23: Patch 6.3 Added 2 more types of seeds, Island Paprika Seeds, and Island Leek Set. Both of these are from the seed vendor, and both of them are unlocked at Rank 11.

Island Sanctuary Seed Locations
Might as well show rather than tell. Here’s an image of where to find ’em:
Seed locations notes for each:
- Island pumpkin seeds (18.5, 26.5): 9 nodes in that area!
- Island cabbage seeds (17.5, 20): 5 here, plus loose nodes N/W of there.
- Island parsnip seeds (13, 15): many around this cliff. Sparse elsewhere.
- Island popoto seeds (13, 12): more than you’ll need around this cape.
the other 8 are only buyable at the mammet NPC
Produce and Seeds – some notes
4 of these seeds are ONLY GATHERABLE – and this could be a good or bad thing. These are a little worse for me because they require actual human input to keep farming them – you actually have to go out in the world and pick them up!
8 of these seeds are ONLY BUYABLE – and this could be a good or bad thing yet again. This requires human input in the form of workshop shenanigans and or other ways to sustain buying the seeds. However, for such a cheap price a small stockpile will last you a LONG TIME.
What’s the best farm setup? I used to talk about it here, but I suppose you can now read this: farm plot setups guide.
Unlocking notes – seeds are pretty much unlocked in batches.
- Lower ranks – Pumpkin and Cabbage are gatherable with your hands!
- Rank 5: Islekeep Shovel upgrade for Parsnip and Popoto seed gathering.
- Rank 9: seed vendor: Isleberry, wheat, tomato, corn, onion, radish seeds.
- Rank 11: Seed vendor adds: Leek, paprika seeds.
Summary and Outro
That’s about it, a short and simple guide about the different types of produce and seeds for your Island Sanctuary in FFXIV. There’s really not much to say, but this should answer all of your questions. Best of luck farming it up out there.
