|Examine||A grapevine seed - plant in a hops patch.|
A grapevine seed is a level 95 Farming seed from which god grapes can be grown on a wooden frame in a hops patch. It can be protected by paying a farmer 15 krandorian hops, though this is inadvisable because the seeds rarely die and the hops are difficult to obtain. The patch will need a frame to grow the vines which can be done with 5 planks.
Steps for farming:
- Treat patch with compost or supercompost (cannot be done after the frame is added).
- Create the frame (use five planks on the hops patch).
- Plant 4 grapevine seeds.
- Check the patch regularly to prevent deaths or pay the nearby farmers 15 krandorian hops.
- Harvest the yield, which will be a random mix of Grapes of Saradomin, Grapes of Guthix and Grapes of Zamorak.
Yield seems to have the same pattern every time; when using super compost, you harvest 3 Grapes of Zamorak followed by 1 Grapes of Guthix followed by 1 Grapes of Saradomin followed by 1 Grapes of Zamorak followed by 1 Grapes of Guthix followed by 1 Grapes of Saradomin followed by 2 random ones.
At the very least you should have 10 Grapes; 4 Grapes of Zamorak, 2 Grapes of Guthix and 2 Grapes of Saradomin. On top of that, you should have at least 2 more (random). The greenfingers aura works on hops, so if you have it activated, it is possible to get more than 10 Grapes per patch. (1000 trips: Average Grapes 12, minimum 10, maximum 16).
