Corrupt Seeds are seeds which can be planted on Dirt Blocks to create Corrupt grass, which will then spread The Corruption in all directions. They drop from the Eye of Cthulhu and can be purchased from the Dryad for 5 SC each during a Blood Moon in a world with Corruption. In a world with Crimson, Corrupt Seeds can be purchased from the Dryad if she is spoken to in a Hardmode Graveyard(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

Corrupt Seeds can be used to farm Vile Mushrooms and may be used to spread Corruption in Crimson worlds. In the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, Corrupt Seeds cannot be obtained within Crimson worlds and must instead be brought over from a Corrupt world.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, Corrupt Seeds can also be planted on Mud Blocks to create Corrupt Jungle grass.
