Onion detail.png

An onion is a vegetable harvested from a onion plant grown from an onion seed in an allotment patch, requiring level 5 Farming. A minimum of three onions are harvested at a time.

Onions can also be picked from plants not grown by players. In this case, no Farming level is required, no xp is given, and each plant yields 1 onion, but they respawn on their own after 30 seconds.

Onions can be stored in a sack. Up to ten onions can be stored in each sack, and players can store onions within multiple sacks.

Onions are required for crafting various foods, including ugthanki kebabs, garden pies, and mushroom potatoes. They are also used in gnome cooking to craft vegetable battas, worm holes, and vegetable balls. Onions can be eaten raw and heals up to 200 life points each

Players can take two onions and five coins to Aggie or two onions and 25 coins to Rana the dyer to make yellow dye.

Farming[edit | edit source]

Onions can be harvested from onion plants grown within an allotment patch. A fully grown onion plant will yield a minimum of three onions at harvest. Each onion, when picked, gives 10.5 Farming experience.

Harvest yields for onion plants are determined by a "harvest lives" system. Each onion plant begins with 3 lives. Additional lives are added with the use of compost (+1 life), supercompost (+2 lives) and ultracompost (+3 lives). Every harvest action will roll a chance out of 255 on the specific patch's "Chance to Save", taking one of the harvest lives from the patch if it does not hit; the patch will be cleared when it runs out of lives. The "Chance to Save" is dependent on the player's Farming level.
