A basket can be used to carry up to five pieces of fruit. Empty baskets may either be purchased from farming shops around RuneScape or may be crafted by players with a Crafting level of 36. This process involves weaving 6 Willow branches by using a loom.
The Fill Basket option will instantly fill a basket with 5 pieces of fruit from the player's inventory. In the past, if one wanted to remove fruit from the basket, they could only be removed one at a time using the Remove-one option. However Jagex has added an Empty Option when right clicked that will put all the content into your inventory.
Although not known, baskets can be a good source of money making.
