- Main article: Confidant/Haru Okumura
After the protagonist has initiated the Confidant with Haru Okumura, he can consult her to cultivate vegetables, which will produce SP-recovering items that can be consumed in battle. She is available on the Shujin Academy roof on afternoons, unless the weather is rainy or snowy. Making a request and the cultivation process do not pass time.
Generally, after requesting a cultivation, the vegetables will take several days to harvest. The duration depends on the request, and Haru will inform the protagonist of when they'll be ready, however, if the weather they're to be harvested on is rainy or snowy, she'll be unavailable, meaning that the protagonist will have to consult her on another day. Additionally, for certain vegetables, it is possible to harvest more than 1 item of the same kind in 1 session.
Some of Haru's Confidant abilities also improve certain factors in the cultivation process. By reaching Rank 5, the harvest yield will be increased by 1. And on Rank 7, the duration needed to cultivate vegetables will be decreased by 1 day.
In Persona 5 Royal, the catalogue of items that can be harvested has been extended. Now Haru can grow items that can boost the user's attack power once. They have similar properties to Charge and Concentrate.
