Early to Rose is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, any Roses harvested will increase the amount of time left in the current day. This is indicated by a small animation of clock with a minute-hand moving backwards above the player's head, a noise that resembles the rapid ticking of a clock, and the timer changing. Single Roses increase the timer by 4 seconds and Mega Roses increase the timer by 20 seconds. This effect also works during Dusk and Dawn, though this will not be reflected in the timer. If the player is about to be picked up by the helicopter and harvests a Rose, the helicopter will fly back up in the air and wait for the added time to pass.
There are a multitude of other items that increase the in-game timer, but Early to Rose is one of the best. It adds substantially more time than other items, such as Chrono Seeds and Chrono Weeds. It also does not require fertilizer to create a Mega Rose, which can make Early to Rose more reliable than Chill Beets. Paired with Flamingo Friend, Early to Rose can be used as a method to gain significant time instantly.
