Growing Gasha Trees

Gasha Seeds are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] They are used to grow Gasha Trees, which bear Gasha Nuts.

Location and Uses

Gasha Seeds are small, raindrop-shaped seeds found in Labrynna and Holodrum. They can be obtained from Treasure Chests, given by Characters, or bought from certain Shops. They can be planted in soft patches of Soil, where they will eventually grow into a Gasha Tree, which bear Gasha Nuts.

Once a Gasha Tree's Nut has reached its final stage of maturity, Links can cut it down with his Swords to open it up, revealing a random item. The possible content of the Nut includes Magic Rings, Hearts, Fairies, Rupees, Potions, and a one-time-only Piece of Heart.

Growth Rate

Gasha Seeds mature as Link defeats enemies. By defeating 40 enemies (or 20 while wearing the Gasha Ring), a Gasha Seed will fully mature into a Gasha Tree. The more enemies are defeated, the more likely a rare item will be found inside the Nut. Soft Soil locations that are difficult to reach or hidden have a higher rate of producing rare items.

Bipin, an expert on Gasha Seeds, can give Link various pieces of advice about them.

  • "The place, planter and the planter's deeds affect what the nut produces."
  • "The contents of a Gasha Nut depend on where the seed was planted."
  • "Inside a Gasha Nut? More than anything, you find Magic Rings, but sometimes you find Rupees or Hearts."
  • "Finding new places to plant Gasha Seeds and finding secret stairways seems to be good for Gasha Nuts. And helping those in need is good for Gasha Nuts."
  • "My experience holds that planting Gasha Seeds in strange spots produces more rare and unusual results!"
  • "A traveler once told me the time it takes for a planted Gasha Seed to mature into a tree is related to how many monsters you slay. Could this be true?"

As the Magic Rings produced from Gasha Seeds are classified into five tiers,[citation needed] each of the sixteen Soil patches found across Holodrum and the sixteen found across Labrynna has a predetermined range of tiers that any Magic Rings grown from them will fall under. The ranges are: tiers 1 to 2, tiers 1 to 3, tiers 2 to 4, and tiers 3 to 5,[citation needed] with the higher ranges appearing less frequently. A Gasha Nut containing the Piece of Heart has the equivalent rarity of a tier 4 Ring.[citation needed]

Nomenclature

Gasha Seeds are likely named after the similarly functioning Gashapon, with their Japanese name being based on the alternative spelling gachapon.
