Crystal acorn detail.png

Crystal acorns are seeds used in the Farming skill. At level 74 Farming, crystal acorns may be planted in plant pots with a gardening trowel and watered to become crystal saplings. They can be obtained from trading crystal weapon seeds, armour seeds and tool seeds to Pennant in Prifddinas, as a reward from the Elven Crystal Chest or from catching crystal implings.

After planting the sapling in a crystal tree patch found in Prifddinas and waiting for it to fully grow, which takes about eight hours, the plant will grow into a crystal tree which can be cut to yield crystal shards. Planting the crystal sapling yields 126 experience, and checking its health gives 13,240 experience.

Harvesting crystal trees grants 8-16 crystal shards, depending on the type of compost used. Ultracompost is the best for this. Magic secateurs have no effect[1]. Players can also receive bird nests after chopping the tree down.
