Wishing well fruit detail

The wishing well fruit is produced after depositing a certain amount of coins to a wishing well bush plant when it's fully grown. Opening it will yield items that could surpass the value of the amount of coins deposited, although there is a chance that they won't. In order to open the fruit, 9 free inventory spaces are needed. The fruit cannot be banked. After opening the fruit, the player will receive the message "You open the fruit and receive bounteous goods."

When opening a wishing well fruit, you also have a chance of receiving a Crystal triskelion fragment. When you do, the chat box reads: "In addition, you receive a part of a crystal key." Estimation based on a data sample of 503 harvests has shown this chance to be around 0.6%.

On average, harvesting wishing well bushes will result in a loss. See the value analysis section for details.

Analysis

Wishing well6

A fully grown wishing well bush

The total value of the items received from opening a wishing well fruit is based on the amount of coins paid to harvest the fruit. The value is expressed as a percentage of this input, where a percentage of 100% implies breaking even. The Jagex wiki lists that the value returned will be random between 25% and 300%. The remainder of this section is based on the data of 503 wishing well bush harvests, and does not take into account the cost of obtaining the seeds.

The return percentage is one of 7 possible percentages, albeit with a minor variation of up to ±2000 coins. These percentages, and the probability with which they are received, can be found in the following table:

25% 55% 80% 100% 110% 140% 300%
3.38% 16.3% 21.67% 32.01% 15.31% 7.36% 3.98%

This data allows us to calculate the expected return percentage on average over time, which is 98.23%.
On average, harvesting wishing well bushes will result in a loss.

Trivia

Farmed and Dangerous concept art

Concept art of the wishing well fruit

  • At one point, harvesting wishing well fruit was extremely profitable due to the reward being based on the Grand Exchange price of items. The fruit would sometimes reward player with over 200,000 seeds, such as barberry and prickly pear seeds, as their Grand Exchange price was only 1 coin. However, these seeds could be sold for up to 75 coins each in general stores, allowing players to gain millions of coins per fruit until a patch on 27 April 2015 lowered the yield.
