Papaya fruits grow on papaya trees, and are used to pay farmers to look after palm trees. Once a papaya tree has grown fully, it can be harvested repeatedly, with a papaya growing back every 30 minutes on average, for a maximum of six per papaya tree.
Harvesting trips are most efficient when the player has at the most, 4 items in their inventory, to minimise time spent running to the tool leprechauns to note papayas. An efficient inventory setup includes a construction cape, farming cape, and a teleportation crystal. This way, the player only needs to use the noting function of the tool leprechaun once. Alternative methods to get to each fruit tree patch are provided below the most efficient route.
Most efficient route: Begin the trip by using the construction cape to teleport to the Brimhaven house portal and run north, harvesting all 6 papayas from the papaya tree. Next, use a teleport crystal to teleport to Lletya. Harvest the papaya tree and note 12 papayas with the tool leprechaun located 2 tiles north of the tree. Then, use the farming cape to teleport to the Farming Guild. Run north into the advanced tier of the guild to harvest the papaya tree. Next, cast Catherby Teleport and harvest the papayas growing on the papaya tree found on the east side of the shore. Then, teleport to your player-owned house and use the Spirit tree to teleport to the Gnome Stronghold. Harvest the papaya tree to the east and return back to the Spirit tree, travelling finally to the Tree Gnome Village. Squeeze through the fence to the south-west and exit the maze quickly by following Elkoy. Travel south-west and harvest the papayas of the final papaya tree.
Farming Guild: Skills necklace teleport, use of the Spirit Tree network to teleport to the Farming Guild, or fairy ring (code CIR). Note that the fruit tree patch is located in the advanced tier of the Farming Guild which requires 85 farming (boostable) to enter. This money-making method otherwise only requires 57 Farming, the skill level needed to plant and harvest papaya trees.
Gnome Stronghold: Royal seed pod teleport, Slayer ring teleport to Stronghold slayer cave, Achievement Diary Cape teleport to the Elder gnome child location, or use of a gnome glider to the Grand tree.
As this uses the same patches as palm trees, it cannot be used at the same time as the picking coconuts method. Whichever one is more profitable should be used.
