Barberry bush

A barberry bush is grown by planting a barberry seed in a bush patch, requiring level 77 Farming. The bush can be protected by paying a farmer 15 hammerstone hops. The seed grows in 3 hours and 20 minutes and yield 1600 experience points from checking the health, and 50 farming experience per harvest (you can only pick once per bush). You will also gain Agility experience on a successful pick, with partial experience (multiples of 20%) being a possibility. The amount of Agility experience you gain depends on your Agility level. When harvesting fruit from a fully grown bush you will somersault over the bush to the opposite side, then eat the fruit immediately. No item is actually gained from harvesting a barberry bush.
