A Mushroom Tree can be tapped with a tapper. It yields Red Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, and Common Mushroom when tapped, except during the Winter. During Winter, the Tapper will remain on the tree, despite the tree itself being replaced by a stump. The following Spring, the tapper may need to be removed and immediately replaced on the Mushroom Tree before it will produce mushrooms. While tappers will remain on stumps, they cannot be placed on stumps during the Winter.
The time until harvest depends on the season in which the tapper is placed: 6000 minutes in Spring or Summer, 3000 minutes in Fall, and 80000 minutes in Winter. The exception to this occurs after harvesting a Purple Mushroom; the time until the next harvest will always be 3000 minutes. (The lengthy processing time in Winter is the reason that the tapper may need to be removed and replaced on Spring 1).
The type of mushroom for the first harvest is determined by the season in which the tapper is placed: Common Mushroom in Spring or Summer, Red Mushroom in Fall.
The type of subsequent mushrooms produced is determined by a combination of the type, date, and season of the mushroom previously harvested. When a Common or Red Mushroom is harvested on the 10th or 20th day of a season, the next time it will produce a Purple Mushroom; when a Purple Mushroom is harvested, the next time it will produce a Red Mushroom. When a Common Mushroom is harvested on a day other than the 10th or 20th, the next time it will produce a Common Mushroom; when a Red Mushroom is harvested on a day other than the 10th or 20th, the next time it will produce a Red Mushroom if harvested in Fall, otherwise, the next time it will produce a Common Mushroom.
Below is a table summarizing what mushroom the tapper will produce after a harvest:
