Magic bean (sundry) detail.png

Magic bean (sundry) is a type of magic bean which can be bought from the Farmers' Market for 400 beans. It can be placed in mushroom, hops, allotment, and evil turnip patches. When planted, the beans grow in about five seconds into a crop that the player can plant in the respective patch. The crop grown is a randomly selected from all potential crops up to 20 levels below the player's Farming level.[1]

Experience[edit | edit source]

At higher farming levels, the best use of sundry magic beans is at the Canifis mushroom patch. Starting at level 74, the player is guaranteed to grow morchella mushrooms at this patch, which can be harvested nine times, giving 77.7 experience each. Adding the planting experience of 160, this gives a base experience of 859.3 Farming experience per cycle. This experience is unaffected by task set rewards or zygomite perks, but is affected by various experience boosting items: the farmer's outfit and its elite version, the master farmer outfit; items with the Wise perk; clan avatar boosts; decorated farming urns; urn enhancers; experience-enhancing auras; etc.

Value[edit | edit source]

Magic beans can be very profitable to plant. It is not recommended that players plant them in the evil turnip patch or allotments due to them offering much less valuable produce.

There is a 1/50 chance to receive a gloomshroom zygomite per mushroom harvested. On average, with no bonuses, the player will receive 0.18 per magic bean planted.

Below level 74 Farming, the player is not guaranteed to receive morchella mushrooms, and as such, the profit may be different. In addition, certain bonuses will affect the number of mushrooms received, such as the elite Morytania tasks, which will double the amount harvested. See below for more details.

The distribution of reed to grapevines planted may[source needed] depend on the player's Farming level. At level 99, the player will receive an equal amount of both.

At 99 Farming, this produces an average of 131,137.2 coins per magic bean, or 327.84 coins per bean. This can be further increased with the greenfingers aura. However, this method requires additional work over morchella mushrooms, as the grapes must be put into jugs of water to make the wine that can be sold. One can speed up the process by only making wines of Saradomin, reducing the value to 98,841.6 coins per magic bean or 247.1 coins per bean.

Evil Turnip[edit | edit source]

Evil turnips are only recommended if the player's Farming level is too low to receive bittercap mushrooms, as the mushrooms are much more valuable.

Morchella mushrooms[edit | edit source]

By growing morchella mushrooms at the Canifis patch, the value of sundry magic beans can be approximated. This value can be increased by completing the Morytania elite tasks and by putting farm totems on zygomite pens that contain an elder zygomite, in order to get the Uncapped Potential farm perk.

There's a chance to obtain unchecked gloomshroom zygomites (worth 123,095 coins) from the morchella mushroom patch. At a chance per harvest, and 9 harvests per magic bean, there is a chance of getting a zygomite per planting. Including this chance adds an average value of 20,464.82 coins per magic bean, or 51.16 coins per farm bean. Including the bonuses of both the Morytania elite tasks and the tier 2 zygomite farm totem perk, this brings the maximum average value harvest to 103,189.22 coins per magic bean, or 257.97 coins per farm bean.

In addition, players can drink Perfect plus potion or Perfect juju farming potion to have a chance at obtaining Harmony moss per harvest, and 9 harvests per magic bean. There is a chance of getting harmony moss per planting. Including this chance adds an average value of 739.13 coins per magic bean, or 1.85 coins per farm bean. Finally, players wearing Tirannwn quiver 3 or higher will have a 10% chance to get 2 harmony moss per harvest, granting slightly more gold per sundry magic bean. Having the yak perk active while doing these runs can also grant the player a 2.5% chance at a clue scroll. Players should wear the Farming cape to provide a chance to instantly harvest all remaining resources from a crop in noted form (includes chance at Zygomites/Harmony Moss). Also, wear Grace of the Elves skilling necklace and Luck of the Dwarves ring to get drops from the rare drop table (RDT).
