Optimal route?[edit source]

Okay having tried this three times and failing every time cause I cannae get to all seven patches within 4 mins (3 times in a row I've teled to the final patch only to run out of time immediately after), can anybody suggest an optimal route? What order to visit the patches in and what items to take? Ciphrius Kane (talk) 08:23, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

I started in Gnome Stronghold, did patch, used spirit tree to Gnome Village (maze), used Elkoy to escape maze, run to patch, did patch, teleport to Karamja lodestone, run north, did patch, use spirit bag teleport to Herblore Habitat, run south, climb vine, did patch, teleport to Catherby lodestone, run south-east to patch, did patch, teleport to Lletya using attuned crystal teleport seed (alternatively you can use Tirannwn quiver or normal crystal teleport seed), did patch, teleport to Meilyr with the same teleport item, did patch. Also at every patch I noted the produce by using it on a tool leprechaun/elf. Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 10:47, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
I've had a number of attempts before I finally got there. An Ent familiar is essential, and Greenfingers aura may help (I reached 58 on 6 trees on one run with these 2). I've bolded the linked places.
  • Start east of Catherby (furthest from any tele point that I could find)
  • Ring of Duelling to South Feldip Hills > Spirit tree to TGS
  • Spirit tree to Brimhaven (half the distance from the lodestone)
  • Grand seed pod - Launch > Glider to TGV
  • Glider to Priff
  • Tirannwyn quiver to Lletya
  • Juju teleport spiritbag to HH

Greenfingers aura[edit source]

I believe the aura's extra produce do not count. When I tried to use my greenfingers aura + Ent familiar, I managed to surpass 60 fruits from 6 trees but the achievement didn't complete.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2604:6000:78cc:800:d807:89cf:e8db:82e6 (talk) on 09:03, 29 November 2019‎ (UTC).

Perhaps the aura doesn't count? Did you complete it within 4 minutes? Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 11:00, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

Problems with this page[edit source]

BUSHES DO NOT COUNT. Read the Achievement description.
1. Start at Catherby. This is the most inconvenient tree, so start here.
2. Crystal teleport seed to Lletya
3. Crystal teleport to Crwys district and Spirit tree
4. Tree Gnome Stronghold fruit tree patch
5. Spirit Tree to Brimhaven, run to fruit tree patch by the docks
6. Crystal teleport seed to Meilyr district in Prifddinas
7. Run to gnome glider a short distance north of Meilyr fruit tree patch
8. Gnome glider to patch outside Tree Gnome Village maze
9. Juju teleport spiritbag/Witchdoctor mask to Herblore Habitat, cross climbable vine to fruit tree patch
While there are 9 steps here, the run should take less time.
-- As noted on the "Yak Track" page, noting the harvest with a Farming Cape may interfere with completing the task. I recommend going without the Farmers Cape for this Achievement.
P.S. Using the Grand Seed pod is a good idea, but only if you can tolerate the loss of 5 Farming levels and still harvest the fruits.

Harvest Amounts[edit source]

Just harvested 51 Ciku, so do this Achievement with Fruit Trees that are of a level that maximizes yield. I might get lucky later, but I should've stuck with Palm Trees for this. THAT 1 CH00B (talk) 15:28, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

Broken[edit source]

When magic beans were a thing that still existed I used them to gather around 140 fruit within the four minutes and the achievement timer expired saying I didn't pick anough. I did it, I think, four times before I just gave up on the achievement. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 07:00, 27 December 2019 (UTC)

Someone just made an edit stating there's a bug that prevents the achievement from being awarded if a farming cape is worn. I'm going to try again without wearing my farming master cape, and if it works I'm going to be a little upset but at the same time relieved that I finally did it. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 05:13, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
No, no matter what I do I can't unlock this achievement. I tried with papayas and calquats and I've picked at least 80 of each in four minutes and nothing happens. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 06:11, 1 June 2020 (UTC)
Fifth attempt failed. I'm certain the article is incorrect about being able to do it with supreme growth potions in a single patch. There's no way. I've done it ten times in total, counting the five I've just done, and this method does not work. I'm removing that from the article since I've tested it almost a dozen times now and it hasn't worked. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 06:22, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Supreme Growth Potion[edit source]

Has anyone actually used this method to unlock the achievement? Plant, growth potion, pick fruits, chop down, clear, plant, growth potion, and so on? I've done it ten times now with a bunch of different fruit tree types, including calquat, and I haven't unlocked the achievement. In fact I get a message in my chatbox saying my progress was reset despite having more than 100 noted fruits in my inventory from using them on the tool leprochaun or more than 80 fewer charges on my grace of the elves. I'm 90% certain that this method does not work and I've removed it from the article based on my results from trying to unlock the achievement using that method. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 06:29, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

Someone mentioned the farming cape preventing this achievement from being earned. I don't think that's the case. I've tried with and without it, I get the same results. Physically picking almost twice the required fruits but still failing to unlock the achievement. I'll have to learn the pathing and try and do it by visiting each patch individually and see if that works. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 06:33, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

I just got the achievement using supreme growth. I definitely only harvested from the one patch. I planted 25 carambola with juju farming, Giant Ent, legendary greenfingers, and master farming cape. Somewhere in the middle I (surprisingly) got the achievement. Not sure if this a bug or feature. Pancaique (talk) 19:12, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

It's likely a bug unless it was modified during the rework. Carambolas aren't supposed to trigger the achievement because they're picked in pairs and it's each action that counts as picking a fruit rather than each fruit picked. So picking two fruits in one action counts as one "thing" being picked. Three actions (pairs of fruits) per plant yields 75 "things", which shouldn't have triggered the achievement until after your 20th plant. I think planting 20 plants, using supreme growth on them, harvesting them, clearing them, and replanting them takes longer than 4 minutes because of the hard unavoidable delays involved. Unless Jagex reworked it it's likely a bug. I'll give it another shot in a moment using different seeds to verify this. Thanks for the info.

Just tried again with papayas. Gathered 105 using supreme growth potions yet the progress reset and I didn't unlock the achievement. I'm going to try with fruit that are picked two at a time now, because it's possible the "every action" vs "every fruit" information is incorrect post-rework. Either that or the Meilyr patch specifically is bugged. I have a million beans so I can try this a couple times. Pet cat (purple) chathead.png WiggleCat Meow! 22:38, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
The information is incorrect. I just completed it with guaranas. The Meilyr patch is also bugged. Thanks for this info! Updating the article to reflect my findings. Finally I have this achievement! I never bothered trying with trees that yeild two fruit at a time because I figured the information about actions vs fruits was correct.
