Earlier this month, we brought you a sneak peek of a new Super Crops feature that we suspected would be launching in FarmVille sometime the near future. Well, our prediction holds true, as some users on the FarmVille forums are starting to receive the new Super Crop feature via a slow rollout (which means you could have received them too!). With this new feature, you'll be able to grow updated, super versions of a few crops, so long as you've already completely mastered their "normal" forms. For instance, you won't be able to plant Super Strawberries until you've already completely mastered the original Strawberry crop.
You'll also have to do a bit of work to unlock these Super Crops, even after you've fulfilled the prior mastery requirement. You'll need to earn the help of six friends, who must approve of your Super Crops before you can actually grow them. Once done, you'll be able to grow these Super Crops from the game's store just as any other crop. For our convenience, there's even a new "Super Crop" sorting option in the store's Seeds & Trees section, but it currently only functions (of course) if the Super Crops have actually rolled around to your farm. Unfortunately, it won't "force" the update as has been the case with other features in the past.
As of right now, it looks like only the following crops are available in Super forms (although we expect many more to be released in the future): Cotton, Cranberries, Grapes, Peppers, Pink Asters, Pumpkins, Strawberries, Watermelon and Yellow Melon.
As you plant these Super Crops, you'll be able to track your progress via the game's Mastery Menu [pictured above], and will earn all new dark brown and gold mastery signs for your trouble (you know, so you don't have two identical strawberry or pumpkin signs sitting right next to each other). If you're a dedicated farmer that has mastered all of the originally available crops in the game, along with those launched in the English Countryside, this will definitely give you something to work on for a while.
