The best tool to collect your berries is a Pitchfork or a Golden Pitchfork, just remember that they only multiply the harvest of your plants, not the natural berry bushes. When planted, your berry bushes will dry up after 3 minutes and 20 seconds (10 minutes when on a plot). When dried up, it will change into brown and cannot produce berries for harvest. To replenish the seeds or plants, a player has to water them with a full Watering Can.
