A curry tree can be grown in a fruit tree patch from a curry tree sapling using the Farming skill. This requires level 42 Farming. Players receive 40 Farming experience for planting a curry tree and 2,907 Farming experience for checking its health when it is fully grown. Players also receive 15 Farming experience each time they pick a curry leaf from the tree, which produces a leaf about once every 30 minutes as fruit. Players may add 3 curry leaves to uncooked stew, which can then be cooked to make curry.
A curry tree, like other fruit trees, takes approximately 16 hours to grow. The nearby farmer may be paid to watch over this tree. The payment is 5 baskets of bananas (25 total, and must be in baskets), and optionally may be noted to save space.
