Papaya tree

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Papaya trees are trees that may be grown with the Farming skill. Level 57 farmers may grow a papaya tree by planting a papaya sapling in a fruit tree patch using a spade. The nearby farmer will watch over a growing papaya tree in exchange for 10 pineapples, which may be noted.

A papaya tree sapling may take fourteen or more hours to mature. Once mature, the tree produces six papaya fruits at a time. Once any of the papaya fruits have been picked, the tree will slowly produce more until all 6 are available again. It takes about 30 minutes for 1 fruit to grow back, or about 3 hours for all 6 fruits to grow back.

Planting a papaya sapling in a fruit tree patch grants 72 Farming experience. Checking the health of a papaya tree grants 6146.6 Farming experience. Harvesting each papaya grants 27 Farming experience, for a total of 162 experience for all six papayas. This works out to 6,380.6 experience from start to finish.
