The newest textile crop. There are two variations, spawned and planted.
Jute requires irrigated soil (see Irrigation ditch) to be planted. It takes 24 hours to grow the planted jute. One jute seed is needed per square.
Both types of Jute are harvested with a scythe to collect the jute stalks and jute seeds. Planted jute gives more stalks while spawned jute gives more seeds.
