Fruit Trees are trees which bear seeds surrounded by a thick organic material called a fruit which is both edible and flavourful. Various fruit trees 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 nests or other sources, added to a plant pot filled with dirt, watered, and then transferred to 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 the coveted 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, especially the coconut.
Growing a papaya or palm tree is part of the Ardougne Tasks. To plant a new tree the old one needs to be chopped down and the roots dug up with a spade.
