Fruit tree seeds are somewhat rare seeds that are planted in fruit tree patches that grow into a fruit tree as part of the Farming skill. Growing fruit trees are somewhat different to other plants, in that there is an intermediate growing stage where the seed must be grown into a sapling before being planted into a cleared fruit tree patch.
First, an empty plant pot may be used on any farming patch, even if something is growing in it, with a gardening trowel to fill the plant pot with soil. Plant one fruit tree seed on the pot with the gardening trowel and water it with a watering can. After a few minutes, the seedling will grow into a sapling which can then be planted in a cleared fruit tree patch.
In order to do this, the player must have a spade in their inventory. Before transplanting the sapling, the player can add compost, supercompost, or ultracompost to the patch, or hire a farmer to look after it in order to lower its rate of getting diseased. However, seedlings and saplings are unable to become diseased while growing in a plant pot.
When fully grown, its health must be checked before harvesting. Picking the fruit tree will yields 6 fruit at maximum.
Note: Saplings and trees do not need watering.
