Cooking apple detail

Cooking apples are items used primarily as an ingredient to make apple pies, summer pies and cider, although they are not edible on their own. They can be obtained from the Cooks' Guild or otherwise harvested from an apple tree grown from an apple tree seed in a fruit tree patch by a player with a Farming level of 27 or higher.

A basket of apples (which contains 5 apples) is used as payment to grow willow trees and strawberries in the Farming skill, while 4 baskets of 5 apples each is used as payment to grow a banana tree.
