Evil turnip seed detail

Evil turnip seeds are used to grow Evil turnip vegetables used in Summoning to summon Evil turnip familiars. A player may plant the seed at level 42 Farming, behind Draynor Manor (on the west side) in an Evil Turnip patch. It takes 4 minutes 30 seconds to grow. Once it is grown, a knife may be used on it to make it a Carved evil turnip. The farming patch does not need any attending (such as watering, curing disease, or using compost). Only a rake and a seed dibber are required. There is a Tool Leprechaun accessible from the Belladonna patch just south of the Evil Turnip patch.

A player may receive evil turnip seeds from birds' nests as well as a drop from either Jungle horrors, Mogres, Catablepons, Cave horrors, Cave crawlers, Rum-pumped crabs, or farmers, although it may be easier to simply buy it from the Grand Exchange. Once it is grown, the harvest will always be a single evil turnip.

  • The examine text refers to the popular expression that something is the "root of all evil." The expression of something being the "root of all evil" is itself a reference to Bible verse 1 Timothy 6:10 which is commonly misquoted to say that "money is the root of all evil".
