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 crafted by players with a Crafting level of 36. Crafting a basket yields 56 Crafting experience. This process involves weaving 6 Willow branches by using a loom. This is one of the tasks in the Medium Falador Tasks set (by using the loom inside the farmhouse west of the cabbage patch).
The Fill option will instantly fill a basket with up to 5 fruits from the player's inventory. In the past, if one wanted to remove fruits from the basket, they could only be removed one at a time using the Remove-one option. However, Jagex has added an Empty option that will empty the basket into the inventory (unless the inventory is full).
Baskets can be filled with apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries or tomatoes. Training Crafting by making baskets is not recommended, as the loss is -18,441 coins per basket, or -329.3 coins per experience point.
