    Papaya fruits grow on papaya trees, and they're used in Summoning, Hunter and Farming. Once a papaya tree has grown fully, it can be harvested repeatedly, with a papaya growing back every 45 minutes for a maximum of six.

    If possible, you should use a giant ent familiar, which has a 50% chance of doubling the yield of papayas, giving you an average of 9 papayas per patch instead of 6. That makes this method work well with other harvesting money makers, like picking cactus spines.

    As this uses the same patches as palm trees, it cannot be used at the same time as the picking coconuts method. Whichever one is more profitable should be used.
