...specifically, fruit tree seeds.

There just seems to be no viable way for an ironman character to get them when they actually need them. From what I can tell, the most likely place to get these level 27 Farming seeds is from the offering stone in the Jadinko Lair, which requires a minimum of 80 Slayer, 83 Woodcutting, 83 Fletching and 83 Firemaking. The Vinesweeper shop doesn't even sell fruit tree seeds below Pineapple, even though they sell everything from Acorns to Yew seeds.

But I think the thing that bugs me the most is that I know for a fact that you can buy these seeds, which are just this side of impossible to obtain naturally, on the GE for 165 gp each. The price doesn't really reflect how insanely difficult it is to get your hands on them...unless I'm missing something.

And I guess that's my question: am I missing something? Is there another way to get them that I haven't thought of, or am I just out of luck until I no longer need them?

Hi DedGrlWalkin,

I don't think you're missing anything. I think fruit seeds are difficult to get when you are lower level and ironman. Monsters mostly drop tree seeds rather than fruit, and stores, and thieving also follows that trend, excepting the Jadinko lair, and vinesweeper which as you have said doesn't have lower level fruit seeds.
The main place I can think of for getting level 27 farming seeds, and main place to get fruit tree seeds is from bird's nests.

Sources of bird's nests are woodcutting with rabbit's foot necklace, but that is very slow.
I think ironmen are able to do evil trees which can have nests as a reward which may have lower level fruit tree seeds.
Giant mole is good source, but at low level ironman isn't safe.
Coeden's seed store sells fruit seedlings, but for that you need to be able to access Priffidas and higher levels..
Gnome restraunt may give nests as a reward which may have fruit tree seeds in them, but that is also slow.
I think the main source for apple seeds on grand exchange would probably be from nests obtained from Kingdom of Miscellania, but that is also not attainable at lower level.

I think evil trees would be easiest of the above choices I can think of for obtaining nests if you're lucky enough to get them as a reward, and therefore fruit tree seeds.

I'm sorry I can't think of any more options, but I hope some of the above helps.
Very best of luck with it, and with your ironman account.

An alternate option for fruit trees are bushes.
I know they aren't the experience boost, that fruit trees are, but they are faster growth and similar harvesting speed. Also, easier to get.
