Barberry seed 5 detail.png
A player picking fruit from a fully grown bush.

Barberry seeds are seeds that can be grown with level 77 Farming. They are planted in bush patches, one seed per patch. Patches can be protected by paying a farmer 15 hammerstone hops. The seed grows in three hours and twenty 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 have a chance to gain Agility experience; upon a successful harvest, you will gain varying amounts of experience. The amount of Agility experience you gain per harvest is based 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.

The seeds can be pickpocketed from gnomes, elves and dwarves. It is also possible to acquire them from Herblore Habitat and Vinesweeper.
