Papaya fruit detail.png

Papaya fruit is a Farming produce obtained primarily from papaya trees, which requires level 57 Farming to grow. They can also be obtained as a drop from certain monsters, or obtained by a fruit bat either using its forager ability or its special move Fruitfall.

Papaya, when eaten, restore 50 life points and 10 run energy. They also have uses in Farming, Herblore, and Hunter: they can be paid to farmers to watch over palm trees at level 68 Farming; they can be added to super energy potions to create adrenaline potions at level 84 Herblore; and they can be used as bait to catch pawyas at level 66 Hunter.

Many players choose to use papayas as a way to make money. By using the Fruit Bat familiar and its Fruitfall Scroll (requires 69 Summoning), players can cause fruit to appear around them. This fruit generally contains at least one papaya, which can then be gathered and sold for reasonable profit.
