Purple Flowers Survey

Okay so, first of all, Professor Snail will ask you about the Purple Flowers. Remember, they are found on both the mainland of Stardew Valley and on Ginger Island, but you have to list only those on Ginger Island. You can go around and look for all of the Purple Flowers on the island. But, if you want to get done with it quickly, check out the answer.

Purple Starfish Survey

Then, in the second Survey, you will have to tell how many Purple Starfish are on the island. Again, you can go on and find all of the Starfish on the Island. Although you will find them at both locations, Ginger Island and at Stardew Valley. But for the survey, you only have to list those found at Ginger Island.

  • The answer is 18 Purple Starfish on the island.

Now remember, you’re free to go and count all the Stardew Valley Purple Flowers and Starfishes on the island. But remember, that is time-consuming, and you will end up wasting a day just looking for them.

But if you happen to give the answer wrong, you will have to wait for a full day. Only when the next day starts will you be able to answer the question. So, although you’re free to go on your own and search for them, it’s better that you go on and put these answers in.


Once you answer correctly to each of the Surveys, you will get one Golden Walnut as a reward. So, in total, you will get two Golden Walnuts as a reward. These walnuts will help you further unlock the island’s parts. You will have to give the Parrots these Golden Walnuts to unlock new locations. And only after you have earned a total of 100 Golden Walnuts will you get access to Qi’s Room.

Getting To Ginger Island

With the 1.5 Update, Ginger Island was added to the game. It is already unlocked in the game. You will have to progress further into the game until you get to the point where you unlock it. Here is the sequence in which you will have to perform certain tasks.

Completing Community Center: To begin with, you will first have to complete the Community Center. For that, you can either complete the Junimos’ donation tasks or by buying the Membership to JojaMart and upgrade it.

Repairing Willy’s Boat: Once the Community Center is reopened, Willy will send you an invitation to meet him in his shop’s back room. The Backroom is a hidden dock where you will find an old Boat. Willy will ask for your help to repair the Boat. For that, you’ll need the following items.

  • 200x Hardwood
  • 5x Battery Pack
  • 5x Iridium Bar

Once you repair Willy’s boat, you can now use it to get to Ginger Island. To travel to Ginger Island, you will have to pay a 1,000g fee. Once you pay the fee, you will get to Ginger Island.

Rescuing Professor Snail

When you’re exploring the Island, you will come across a tent. That tent will be empty. Up ahead, there is a cave that has rocks blocking it. If you hit the rocks with your pickaxe, you will hear a voice that asks you to rescue them. For that, you will have to blast the Cave open with a bomb. I used the Mega Bomb that I bought from the Dwarf at the Volcano. The Mega Bomb costs 1,000g.

Once you have the bomb, place it where the rocks have blocked the path and get away. The path will open, and Professor Snail will come out of it. He will thank you and tell you that he will be found at the Island Field Office. You can interact with him there to complete his quests.
