"Ever get bored of mining for resources all the time? Want a new way of collecting them? Magical Crops gives you the ability to grow your own resources with all of the mod compatibility you could want! Grow Diamonds, Coal, Emeralds or even Experience! It even has seeds to get all of your mob drops!! Now go and create a vast farm for all your needs!"

Magical Crops is a mod that adds several different crops, block and items to minecraft. The crops can be used for food or for growing special essence that can be turned into items and precious metals.

The terrain generation in Magical Crops is Essence Ore, which after being mined drops Essence Dust. Essence Dust can also be farmed by planting Essence Seeds and waiting until the plant is mature.

Most food seeds can be found the same way vanilla seeds can be found, by breaking tall grass and shrubs.

Fruit and Veg[edit]


Each crop is grown from its respective seed and drops 1-2 seeds along with one of the food item. They all restore 1.5 hunger. All of them can also be crafted into juice by combining them with a glass bottle and a squeezer. They will restore 3 hunger.

  • Blackberry
  • Chili
  • Cucumber
  • Grape
  • Raspberry
  • Strawberry
  • Sweetcorn
  • Tomato


Any of these crops can be used to craft Magical Food. Eating Magical Food will restore 3 hunger and give you the potion effect "Health Regeneration III" for 2 seconds, restoring 5 hit points.

Magical food is crafted by surrounding 1 Nature Essence with 8 of any of these crops. This recipe gives you 4 pieces of Magical Food.

Magical Crops[edit]

To get started with magical crops you will need some Essence Dust. Using Essence Dust you can create an infusion stone, which is necessary for the creation of magical seeds.


Both Essence Dust and the infusion stone have multiple tiers. Each tier infusion stone can be crafted by surrounding the lower tier stone with 8 magical essences of the highest tier that is available to you before crafting the higher tier infusion stone. Each higher tier of essence can be crafted by a high enough tier infusion stone, surrounded by 4 of the lower tier essence. Only the master infusion stone is capable of crafting all tiers of essence, the others will only craft one type.


Magical seeds are planted to grow the relevant Magical Crop. Harvesting the crop yields 1 Essence of the type of crop it came from and 1 Essence Seed. There is also a random chance for the crop to drop a second seed. When a player harvests a crop there is also a chance of getting a Weak Essence or a Nature Essence.


Each type of Essence Dust be crafted at a crafting bench into its corresponding item. For instance, 8 Coal Essence in a circle will yield 12 coal. Some main essences will also be able to dye certain items like glowstone by combining them in a crafting bench. Some essences like nether essence and dye essence will create a large spectrum of items. A dye essence for example will create every single dye except for lapis lazuli.

A seed is crafted by 1 essence seed, 4 Essence (which can vary from Essence Dust to Extreme Essence) and 4 of the relevant item.


The default available Esssence Crops are:

  • Coal Crop
  • Dye Crop
  • Redstone Crop
  • Glowstone Crop
  • Diamond Crop
  • Emerald Crop
  • Blaze Crop
  • Ender Crop
  • Gold Crop

  • Experience Crop

  • Peridot Crop
  • Aluminium Crop
  • Rubber Crop

  • Iridium Crop
  • Manganese Crop
  • Ardite Crop (Tinkers' Construct)
  • Cobalt Crop (Tinkers' Construct)
  • Ferrous Crop (Thermal Expansion)
  • Platinum Crop (Thermal Expansion)
  • Infused Shard Crop (Thaumcraft)
  • Uranium Crop (IC2)
  • Oil Crop (IC2)
  • Force Crop (Dartcraft),
  • Dark Iron Crop (Factorization)
  • Magnesium Crop (Mariculture)
  • Osmium Crop (Mekanism)

  • Chimerite Crop (Ars Magica 2)
  • Moonstone Crop (Ars Magica 2)
  • Sunstone Crop (Ars Magica 2)
  • Vinteum Crop (Ars Magica 2)


It is impossible to use Bonemeal to speed up the growth of any crops from the magical crops mod, except for the basic food crops. You can however craft magic fertilizer, which will grow your crops instantly. A Sigil of the Green Grove from Blood Magic or a Watering Can from Extra Utilities will speed up the growth as well.

Magic crops are fully Matured when they have a small sphere of the colour that correlates to the essence you put in them (ie. A coal crop will be mature when a black sphere is formed on top.) Magic crops will not always drop 2 seeds. Magic crops also have enchantment particle effects.

All other crops are similar to magical crops.
