Belladonna seed detail

A belladonna seed is used in Farming, and grows into cave nightshade. Players can only plant it in the belladonna patch, which is located at Draynor Manor. They require level 63 Farming to plant the seed, and players gain 91 experience for planting it and 512 experience for successfully harvesting it.

A nearby gardener will not watch over your growing belladonna plant.

Farmers must pick nightshade with gloves equipped, or they will be hit for 20 poison damage instead of harvesting the nightshade. Certain decorative gloves, such as Samid's gloves, Santa gloves, Mime gloves, and Hati paws or gloves from Fist of Guthix, such as cadantine gloves, do not work safely. Some other items that go in the hand slot like the Regen bracelet do not work, but other hand slot items like the farmer's cuffs do work.

  • This plant is likely named from the real world plant Atropa belladonna, which is sometimes called "belladonna" or "nightshade," or even "deadly nightshade." In older times it was used in making not only poisons, but medicines, recreational drugs, and cosmetics.
