Old School RuneScape Wiki

Fruit trees are fruit-bearing trees that can be grown using the Farming skill, although some also grow naturally on tropical islands such as Karamja. The necessary seeds to grow them must be obtained from bird's nests or other sources, added to a plant pot filled with dirt, watered, and then planted in a fruit tree patch. Level 27 Farming is needed to start planting apple trees, the lowest requirement to grow a fruit tree, and level 68 Farming is needed for palm trees, the highest requirement to grow a fruit tree. Sources of seeds may be found in the Farming skill guide.

Fully-grown fruit trees will bear fruit which can be picked by players. Fruits have various uses, including being a common ingredient in Gnome cooking as well as an ingredient in a few other items which players can make using the Cooking skill. Some fruits are also used as ingredients in potions made using the Herblore skill.

Growing a healthy fruit tree is required for various achievement diaries.

Locations and optimal methods of travels

Full list of all patches and closest teleports can be found here.

Note: Remember that many of these methods of travels have various requirements so do click on their links to know more about the requirements and additional useful information. The Royal seed pod is arguably the most useful item and has the highest requirements, as it will allow you to freely and easily travel to three of the five locations (as well as to all but one of the regular tree patch locations), however it requires completion of Monkey Madness 2.

  • Lletya: near the bank
    • Fastest way: Teleport crystal to the central area of Lletya. There is no other fast way to Lletya.
