Gourd seeds are a collectible item in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. These rare items are used to upgrade the capacity of your healing gourd, letting you use it more times before having to rest at a Sculptor’s Idol. Once you’ve upgraded it fully, you’ll unlock the Ultimate Healing Gourd trophy. If you’re having trouble finding them, this guide will show you all Sekiro gourd seed locations, to help you upgrade your healing flask.
Where to find gourd seeds?
You’ll get the first seed by defeating a mini boss called General Naomori Kawarada, in the Ashina Outskirts area. The next one comes from Hirata Estate. When you reach the Chained Ogre mini boss, scale the building behind him using the grappling hook. Once inside, turn left and you’ll find the seed in the next room.
One seed can be bought from the Battlefield Memorial Mob vendor for 1000 gold. He appears after the Gyoubu Oniwa boss fight. Climb up the stairs and head right, going around the building. Go up the other set of stairs there, and you’ll happen upon the merchant’s tent.
And that’s the whole bunch. After you’ve picked up the ninth seed and used it to upgrade the gourd, you’ll unlock the Ultimate Healing Gourd achievement. Here’s what the item description looks like:
Seed from which healing waters continuously spring forth. Give to Emma to increase the maximum uses of the Healing Gourd. The twisted gourd of medicinal waters was known throughout Ashina since long ago, but it was the extraordinary healer Dogen and his pupil Emma who discovered the self-replenishing nature of this seed.
