A strange plant appears as a random event, where it will start growing near a player. The player must wait until the plant is fully grown before they can pick the strange fruit. The player can pick the fruit or just dismiss the plant.
Previously, the plant would attack and poison the player if ignored for too long. However, since the Optional Randoms update, the plant will no longer harm the player if ignored.
The strange fruit picked from the plant restores 30% of a player's run energy when eaten. It can also be used to cure poison. This message will pop up in your chat box. "It tastes great, some of your energy is restored!"
