Papaya fruits grow on papaya trees, and they 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 45 minutes for a maximum of six.

Start out at Catherby, and run south-east to the tree patch. Harvest the papayas, and note them with the tool leprechaun. Do the same thing in Brimhaven by running to the Catherby docks, charting a ship to Brimhaven for 480 coins (240 if you've completed Cabin Fever), or with a Brimhaven tablet. Then, teleport to Al Kharid using a ring of dueling, use the gnome glider to get to the Tree Gnome Stronghold, and harvest the papayas on that tree. Afterwards, use the spirit tree to get to the Tree Gnome Village, exit the maze by following Elkoy, and harvest that patch. Then, teleport to Lletya with the elf crystal, harvest that 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.
