Creating Ben's Rainbow.

The five rainbows are a crucial element in the game Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. It is considered a major part of the main quest, and you may begin finding and accessing these rainbows after you find and reunite the two halves of the quilt, which is necessary for the Harvest Sprites to talk to you.

Accessing the rainbows allow you to unlock new areas and places such as Mt. Gelato and The Gull islands, and consequently, also unlocks the characters that reside in such places, allowing more people to visit and frequent Waffle Island, and giving you access to new stores, potential spouses and even pets.

General Information

While exploring the island, you may have encountered one or a few of the five large trees that have a small colored flower at the base of it. These flowers represent the five Harvest Sprites, and when you have the completed quilt, watering the flower in front of the tree will prompt the Harvest Sprite to pop up, and he will then give you a recipe. If you gather all the items he asks for and return to the tree, you will have completed a rainbow, which acts as a bridge of sorts, taking you to a new area that was previously inaccessible.

Preparations

As mentioned, before you can begin the rainbows quests, you have to complete the quilt first. For an in-depth explanation on how to do so, visit the main article: The Quilt (ToT).

It is a good idea to plan ahead and start gathering as many rainbow recipe items as you can early on in the game. Some items cannot be gained until much later in the game, but if you are careful and aware, there are other means of getting it earlier, and you don't want to miss the chance (e.g. Apples only grow in Fall, and it is an ingredient in the first rainbow; your only option would be to buy a seedling from Souffle Farm and wait until it grows in the Fall for harvest, but there is also a stand at the flea market during the last week of Spring that sells apples, and buying it then will save you a lot of time).

The Five Rainbows

Daren's Rainbow

Daren1

Daren awakened.

Daren is the green Harvest Sprite. His tree and flower are located in the Town Square, near the Town Hall. It is the first rainbow to complete, and doing so will unlock West Gull Island, as well as Toucan Island. You can also meet many new villagers by completing this rainbow, including Candace and Luna, who are potential spouses.

Ingredients:

Item Ways to Obtain
Grilled Yam
  • Grow a Yam, and grill it on the beach, using a box of Matches (buyable at the General Store).
  • Alternatively, you can buy a ready-made Grilled Yam at the first or second flea-market of the year, during the last week of Spring or Summer. This saves a lot more time, as Yams only grow in the Fall.
Apple
  • Buy an Apple Seedling from Souffle Farm, and grow it in your plot.
  • Alternatively, you can buy Apples at the first and second flea-market of the year, during the last week of Spring and Summer, or purchase them from Souffle Farm in the Fall. This saves a lot more time, as Apples only grow in the Fall, and the tree takes two seasons to grow.
Good Herb Fish Make it at home, using a fish and any herb. It will be considered "Good" if the value of the ingredients add up to 300 to 600 G. Good Herb Fish is made in the oven. I would suggest using a eel and a green herb, this will give you a perfect herb fish but good or higher will work for the recipe.

Catch it downstream, midstream, in the river or Maple Lake.
