Food is the broad term for items that slimes eat and in turn produce plorts. Although plorts can be eaten, they are not considered food. Fruits, Meat, Veggies, and Other are the four categories of food that can be fed to slimes. Most Slimes have a preferred food to eat. Food can be found throughout The World: Fruits are located on trees, Meat near nests, and Veggies in crops. Food can also be farmed at the Ranch: Chickens are made in Coops, and Veggies or Fruits in Gardens. However, if you don't keep watch on your gardens and coops, Veggies and Fruits can decay and Meat can become of no more use.

Here is a list of the available food:

Note: Chickadoos, Briar Chickadoos and Stony Chickadoos are referenced as "Future Meat." As such, they cannot be eaten by any Slime. The player is also considered "food", but the only slime that "eats" Ranchers is the Tarr, and Ranchers are the Tarr's "favorite" food!

Fruits

You can grow fruit on your Ranch in a Garden. One harvest can yield up to thirty fruit. You need to have three different fruit trees on your ranch to get the Fruit Cocktail achievement.


Pogofruit

On the Ranch:
Deposit a pogofruit into a garden's depositor and you'll grow a large pogofruit tree of your very own. This tree will last for several harvests.

Pogofruit are a common sight almost anywhere on the Far, Far Range. Tasting a bit like a peach, they're most notable for having their trademark spots both on and under the skin.

Tips

  • The Pogofruit is the most common and most accessible fruit and is very helpful for feeding Fruit-eating slimes, such as The Phosphor Slime or the Honey Slime. It may be unwise to make a garden containing pogofruit, as many can be found just outside the Ranch's walls.


Cuberry

On the Ranch:
Deposit a cuberry into a garden's depositor and you'll grow a large cuberry tree of your own. This tree will last for several harvests.

Due to their sweet taste and curious shape, cuberries were quick to become a favorite amongst the first ranchers on the range. They are often used in cakes and pies when celebrating special occasions, like birthdays or Plortapalooza.


Mint Mango

On the Ranch:
Deposit a mint mango into a garden's depositor, and you'll grow a large mint mango tree of your very own. This tree will last for several harvests.

The mint mango is perhaps the sweetest fruit ever discovered. Its appearance is that of a mango, with a thicker, syrup-like juice, and a bright, minty aftertaste. It's no wonder Honey Slimes seek them out or that they have such amazingly fresh breath.

Tips

  • Mint Mangoes can be found in the same area as the Honey Slimes, however, they grow very slowly on trees and may not be immediately visible.

Trivia
These are said to taste in real life like drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth.


Phase Lemon

On the Ranch:
A phase lemon comes from a different place and time. They are like an echo, reverberating through the halls of the Ancient Ruins, never staying in the same place for long.

In order to harvest phase lemons a rancher must pass fruit matter through the phase lemon tree when lemons are present. This process somehow removes the fruit from our reality and phases in a lemon in exchange.

Deposit a phase lemon into a garden's depositor and you'll grow a large phase lemon tree of your very own. This tree will last for several harvests.

Tips

  • Even after planting a phase lemon tree in a garden, you'll need other fruit to exchange for the crop it grows, so have some Pogofruit on hand when you're ready to harvest.
  • The harvests don't last for long until they disappear, so watch out for that.
  • In The Ruins they can pop up just about anywhere.


Prickle Pear

On the Ranch:
Deposit a prickle pear into a garden's depositor and you'll grow a large prickle pear tree of your very own. This tree will last for several harvests.

Prickle pears are as tough as the Glass Desert itself; having a thick, leathery, skin and covered in sharp barbs, they're an 'aquired taste' to be sure. But those put forth the cautious effort will find one of the sweetest fruits in the known universe hiding within.

Trivia

  • Prickle Pears used to be the Rock Slime's favorite food.
  • Prickle Pears currently are the only food to have its about section completed


Veggies

Veggies can be grown in a garden like fruit. They are an alternative food source from fruits, although some slime will only consume veggies. You need to have three veggie gardens on your ranch to get the salad bar achievement.


Carrot

On the Ranch:
Deposit a carrot into a garden's depositor and you'll have a large carrot crop of your own. This crop will last for several harvests and is consumed by a large variety of slimes.

The humble carrot was brought to the Far, Far Range because they're easy to grow and nutritious. Most ranchers swear by them as they're a handy portable snack, promote good night vision, and when juiced are only second to coffee as the perfect morning beverage.


Heart Beet

On the Ranch:
Deposit a heart beet into a garden's depositor and you'll have a large heart beet crop of your very own. This crop will last for several harvests. Heart beets get their name from their deep, red color and heart-like shape. Heart beets are also unusually juicy for a beet, making it the only veggie that's not for the squeamish in the kitchen.

Tips

  • In the first area you can access; the Heart Beets only appear occasionally at night time in patches where Carrots normally grow.
  • However, some Heart Beets can be found during the day if you look on higher plateaus using the Jetpack. Such as on the left-hand side of the very first open area that only spawns Pink Slimes (and Phosphors at night).
  • It can also be found under bridges (such as the one that is next to the area where Tabby, Rock, and Pink Slimes all spawn together).

Trivia

  • Its name, Heart Beet, is a matter of wordplay, referencing 'Heart Beat"


Oca Oca

On the Ranch:
Deposit an Oca Oca into a garden's depositor and you'll have a large Oca Oca crop of your very own. This crop will last for several harvests.

A staple of cooking on the range, the hearty Oca Oca is a naturally salty, soft spud. As the key ingredient to the always tasty 'rancher's hashbrowns' they have likely been the fuel for a great deal of slime wrangling since their discovery on the range.


Odd Onion

About:
Odd Onions can only be foraged in the Indigo Quarry; however you'll never encounter an Odd Onion patch. Instead, odd onions can be found randomly in other veggie patches. As the saying goes 'Forage into the Indigo Quarry and you'll always find the Odd Onion in your haul.'

On the Ranch:
Deposit a Odd Onion into a garden's depositor and strangely, carrots will begin to grow. However, there is a good chance you'll get some odd onions in your crop as well. This crop will last for several harvests.

Tip

  • It is always wise to keep at least one Odd Onion in storage, as there may be a very small harvest of them come their growth and their limited numbers make them easy to waste.


Silver Parsnip

On the Ranch:
Deposit a Silver Parsnip into a garden's depositor and you'll have a large Silver Parsnip crop of your very own. This crop will last for several harvests.

Despite their slightly metallic aftertaste, these shimmering root veggies are considered a delicacy by gourmands across the galaxy. On the Far, Far Range, ranchers often eat them during the holidays, to bring good fortune in the coming year.


Meat

The different animals can be cultured at a Coop. All animals (except for chickadoos) equal one meal for your Slimes.


Hen Hen

On the Ranch:
Hen hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.

Hen Hens are a special breed of chicken bred to survive the climate of the Far, Far Range. While appearing more or less like a big chicken, these burly birds are much more adept at fending for themselves, making them ideal for ranchers who might otherwise be distracted by a few hundred hungry slimes.


Trivia

  • Like Slimes, Hen Hens and their variants have AI that dictates their actions. Hen Hens are known to jump onto rocks away from the reach of hungry Slimes, or avoid falling off cliffs into the mouths of slimes (to an extent).


Stony Hen

On the Ranch:
Stony hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce stony chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.

Stony hens are thought to have evolved from hen hens who once trekked deep into the mountains of the Far, Far Range. Perhaps these birds were seeking a clarity of mind that one can truly obtain through meditation amongst these lofty, barren crags. But most likely, they were just stupid and got lost.

Note: Stony Hens and Chickadoos do not have a Roostro counterpart. In order to breed, a regular roostro needs to be used.


Briar Hen

 

On the Ranch:
Briar hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce briar chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.

Briar hens are a chicken variant born from the wild thickets of the Far, Far Range. They were first discovered long ago by an explorer who noted that they seemed to have a complex tribal structure, and a fascinating series of chicken customs. He even may have joined the briar tribe as an honorary chicken himself! His records end there however, and we know nothing else about him or his findings. Oh, but his name was Carl. We know that.

Note: Briar Hens and Chickadoos do not have a Roostro counterpart. In order to breed, a regular roostro needs to be used.


Painted Hen

 

On the Ranch:
Painted Hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce painted chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity make them anxious and egg production will come to a halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens."

Painted Hens are the colorful chicken variants found in the Glass desert. It is unknown what caused their rainbow-like plumage to occur. One theory suggests their colors are a biological mimicry of the prismatic glass found within the desert, while another theory states that their wild colors made them the dominant mates of Cluck Kingdoms and thus were banished to the desert by a coalition of jealous chickens who couldn't compete with these fashionable fouls.

But the latter theory is only believed by one strange person, so we're not sure why it would have been included here.



Elder Hen

On the Ranch:
An elder hen can no longer lay eggs and serves no other purpose than becoming a slightly tough chicken dinner.

Elder hens have lived a full-feathered life. They've met the roostro of their dreams, seen their little chickadoos grow up, and are ready to start the next chapter of their chicken lives. In all likelihood this will include getting the names of countless books, movies and actors wrong. But don't blame them for that. They're chickens for goodness sake.

Tips: An Elder Hen or Roostro is required for the achievement Carousel, where you must throw one into an Incinerator.


Roostro

On the Ranch:
All hens in close proximity to roostros will periodically lay eggs that produce chickadoos. However, keeping too many hens or roostros in close proximity makes them anxious and egg production will come to a halt. Savvy ranchers with an understanding of the complex nature of chicken romance always keep their coops from exceeding 12 grown chickens.

Roostros are the alpha birds on the Far, Far Range and half of the equation required to breed chickens on the ranch. However, roostros are rarer than any hen making them a great find any time one is discovered.

To acquire a roostro, either find one out on the range or breed them on the ranch. Any type of chickadoo has a small chance of growing into a roostro. Some ranchers believe that these odds increase if you greet the Rooster King's crow at sunrise with an enthusiastic 'good morning!'


Elder Roostro

On the Ranch:
An elder roostro can no longer sire chickadoos and serves no other purpose than becoming a slightly tough chicken dinner.

Elder roostros are the senior-aged roostros who have retired from the otherwise bustling life of their younger counteparts. 'Young roostros crow too much, they move too fast, and frankly have no respect for their elders,' an elder roostro might say of youths; as they make a gross, smacking sound with their lips. Though this is of course impossible, as roostros do not have lips.

Note: An elder roostro can be used to get the carousel achievement.


Chickadoo

On the Ranch:
Keep chickadoos in a safe place and they'll eventually grow into a Hen Hen or Roostro.

Chickadoos are baby chickens that will eventually grow into a hen hen or more rarely, a roostro.

Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Some believe this is because slimes are too kind-hearted to do such a thing. Others believe it's because chickadoos don't yet have enough meat on their bones.

Tips

  • Chickadoos cannot be used as food for slimes or for getting plorts from a Gold Slime; they need to grow up first!
  • A chickadoo is also required for the achievement "You... Monster!" in which you must throw a chickadoo into an Incinerator.


Stony Chickadoo

On the Ranch:
Keep Stony Chickadoos in a safe place and they'll eventually grow into a Stony Hen or a Roostro.

Stony chickadoos are baby chickens that will eventually grow into a stony hen or more rarely, a roostro.

Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Some believe this is because slimes are too kind-hearted to do such a thing. Others believe it's because chickadoos don't yet have enough meat on their bones.


Briar Chickadoo

 

On the Ranch:
Keep Briar Chickadoos in a safe place and they'll eventually grow into a Briar Hen or Roostro.

Briar chickadoos are baby chickens that will eventually grow into a briar hen or more rarely, a roostro.

Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Some believe this is because slimes are too kind-hearted to do such a thing. Others believe it's because chickadoos don't yet have enough meat on their bones.


Painted Chickadoo

 

On the Ranch:
Keep Painted chickadoos in a safe place and they'll eventually grow into a Painted Hen or a Roostro

Painted chickadoos are baby chickens that will eventually grow into a painted hen or more rarely, a roostro.

Chickadoos of all varieties will never be eaten by slimes. Some believe this is because slimes are too kind-hearted to do such a thing. Others believe it's because chickadoos don't yet have enough meat on their bones.
