The Savoroot is one of the 4 Crops in the game. It is harvested from a plant grown from a Savoroot Seed on a medium or large crop plot. A Savoroot plant can only hold up to 150 Savoroots in a crop plot at a time.

This item expires very quickly once removed from the crop plot in a similar fashion to Raw Prime Meat, but its durability can be extended by a short time using a Preserving Bin or Refrigerator. It is recommended not to pick Savoroots from a crop plot until ready to use (unless you run out of fertilizer).

You can find Savoroot plants and seeds in the warm climate mountains on The Island The Island Icon.png and The Center The Center Icon.png. On Ragnarok Ragnarok Icon.png some wild plants can be found in the Highlands and can be picked up like all other plants with the Use key, same with Valguero Valguero Icon.png , it can be found in the The Farm.
