Hop seeds are used to grow hops in hops patches in the Farming skill, or placed in a Bird House in the Hunter Skill. The hops harvested can be used to make different types of beers and ales in Cooking. They are planted in a hops patch by using four hop seeds (or three for jute seed). Hops should be watered frequently with a watering can until fully grown.
Harvests vary between 3 and 46 hops and is done with a spade in the player's inventory. After a patch has been harvested, it is cleared for re-planting. Hops are susceptible to disease which will always kill crops unless cured.
