See also Primal fruit pulp.png: RS3 Inventory image of Primal fruit pulpPrimal fruit pulp for info on fruit. Harvesting primal fruit allows a player to get farming xp while collecting valuable fruit. Once a plant has fully grown, fruit can be collected regularly without additional input. Higher level fruit gives more experience, more pulp and often more profit. A player can start as early as 95 Farming with just collecting dragonfruit.png: RS3 Inventory image of dragonfruitdragonfruit in cactus patches, 99 Farming for Avocado.png: RS3 Inventory image of AvocadoAvocado in bush patches and 101 Farming for Ciku.png: RS3 Inventory image of CikuCiku in fruit patches. Fruit that gives more xp and pulp is unlocked at 105, 107, 111, 113 and 116 Farming (boostable, pork pie gives +5). The legendary greenfingers aura gives a 15% chance to get an additional piece of any fruit, while the master farmer gives a 10% chance to get an additional piece of fruit at the bush or fruit tree patches. A primal fruit run consists of 3 parts:


For the bush patches a wolpertinger doubles yield and xp. The bush can be clicked once per tick for faster harvesting. The patches are at:

  • Champion's guild, reachable from the Combat bracelet.png: RS3 Inventory image of Combat braceletCombat bracelet or Varrock lodestone.
  • Rimmington, reachable from a (modified) Teleport to house.png: RS3 Inventory image of Teleport to houseTeleport to house or Port Sarim lodestone.
  • Ardougne monastery, reachable with Kandarin monastery teleport.
  • Crwys clan, reachable with a teleport crystal, spirit tree or Prifddinas lodestone.
  • Etceteria, reachable with a spirit tree, fairy ring (CIP) or Ring of Wealth.png: RS3 Inventory image of Ring of WealthRing of Wealth.

Fruit Trees

For the fruit tree patches a giant ent gives a 50% chance to get an extra piece of fruit. The tree can be clicked once per tick for faster harvesting, but be careful of clearing the patch (chopping it down is not harmful by itself). The patches are at:

  • Tree Gnome Stronghold, reachable with a spirit tree, which can be found at the Crwys clan, grand exchange or player owned farm.
  • Brimhaven, from the spirit tree or Karamja lodestone.
  • Catherby, from the lodestone or lunar spell.
  • Herblore Habitat, from the Witchdoctor mask.png: RS3 Inventory image of Witchdoctor maskWitchdoctor mask or a Juju teleport spiritbag.png: RS3 Inventory image of Juju teleport spiritbagJuju teleport spiritbag (consumed).
  • Lletya, from a teleport crystal or the Tirannwn quiver 1.png: RS3 Inventory image of Tirannwn quiver 1Tirannwn quiver 1.
  • Meilyr clan, from a teleport crystal, Tirannwn quiver 4.png: RS3 Inventory image of Tirannwn quiver 4Tirannwn quiver 4 or the Prifddinas lodestone.
  • Outside the Tree Gnome Village, from a gnome glider (Al Kharid or Meilyr clan) or spirit tree.


The cactus patches only give increased yield with the aura. The patches are at:

  • Al Kharid, reachable from the glider or lodestone.
  • Het's Oasis, reachable from the Al Kharid lodestone
  • Menaphos, reachable from the lodestone.
  • Anachronia, reachable from the northern totem Anachronia Teleport or the lodestone. This patch is very far from the lodestone.

The order in which these runs are done does not matter, but by switching the fruit trees and bushes a player can re-use of either a giant ent or a wolpertinger pouch if they log out between runs.

By using the fruit on a tool leprechaun they will note all other pieces of that type in an inventory.
