Papaya tree seed detail.png

Papaya tree seeds may be grown into a papaya tree by planting the seed in a filled plant pot, watering it and then planting the sapling into a fruit tree patch. The tree will give 6 papayas at a full harvest, and the papayas will regrow over time. Players must have level 57 Farming to plant it, granting 72 Farming experience points. The tree takes a minimum of 960 minutes (roughly 16 hours) to finish growing, and yields 6,146.6 experience when checked. Seeds may be obtained as drops from various monsters as well as from bird nests.

A nearby gardener will watch over your growing papaya tree at the cost of 10 pineapples, which can be in either item or noted form.
