Poison ivy berries are acquired through the Farming skill by picking from a player-grown poison ivy bush. The item is an ingredient in weapon poison (++), and can be used with a Compost Bin to make supercompost. Harvesting this item from the farming patch south of Ardougne is a requirement for the Hard Ardougne Diary.
Farmers require a payment of eight poison ivy berries to watch over your growing Calquat tree. Poison Ivy Bushes do not require any payment for protection because they do not get diseased.
According to the book Gielinor's flora - flowers, every part of a poison ivy bush contains toxins that can cause itchy, irritating and painful rashes that lasts for days. Symptoms include swelling, vomiting and fever, where victims have described the experience as feeling like your blood is boiling within you.

Farming[edit | edit source]
After harvesting the berries, a player will easily recover the cost of the seed, but the low exchange price keeps the profit low relative to other bush produce. In addition, the poison ivy bush will never become diseased, so using compost, supercompost, or ultracompost is unnecessary. These grow in 2 hours and 40 minutes, yielding 674 experience points from checking the health, and 45 experience points per berry picked making them quite efficient for training Farming past level 70. There is generally a high demand for these berries, usually used as payment for protecting Calquat trees. Even though the berries can be used to make Weapon poison(++) at 82 Herblore, since one of its ingredients is not tradable, there is little demand to use the berries for training Herblore.
Further picking the berries will not require a specific Farming level. Once all berries are picked from the bush, it will produce more berries, approximately 1 per 20 minutes. One seed can produce a minimum of 4 berries, where the Farming level reduces the chance of using up one of the three "lives" of the patch, much like harvesting herb patches.
