Onion plant

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Onion plant must be grown with the Farming skill. Level 5 farmers may plant 1 onion seed in an allotment patch that has been treated with compost. Compost or Super Compost may be added prior to planting, and once planted (using a seed dibber), the nearby farmer may be paid to watch over your allotment. Payment is 1 sack of potatoes and optionally may be noted to save you space.

Planting the onion seeds gives 9.5 farming experience. If the farmer does not watch the allotment, then disease in the allotment may be removed using Plant cure, or using the Cure plant spell in the Lunar spellbook with level 66 Magic and completion of Lunar Diplomacy (albeit more expensive, this can save inventory space when doing farm runs). However, if left alone, the diseased allotment will die.

Each onion, when picked, gives 10.5 farming experience. Once all onions have been picked, the allotment will be clear for new crops.
