  • Quarry bush leaves (Process to bag)
This article is about an older version of DF.

The quarry bush is one of the six subterranean crops. Quarry bush seeds are known as rock nuts. They can be planted in Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Quarry bushes can be processed at a farmer's workshop into bags of quarry bush leaves, which then must be cooked at the kitchen to be edible. You will need an empty bag to be available for this task.

Processing quarry bushes at a farmer's workshop will produce 5 quarry bush leaves (and one rock nut) for every plant in a given stack of quarry bushes. Processing one bush will require one bag and can yield 5 leaves from each plant in stack. Quarry bush leaves will be removed from their bag if taken for cooking while still in a farmer's workshop.

Cooking quarry bush leaves can result in very large stacks of Prepared Food, thus saving space and barrels. In a fortress that relies on selling large expensive stacks of Prepared Food, quarry bush leaves are great filler: a lavish meal made from longland beer and dwarven cheese with two stacks of quarry bush leaves for filler is worth almost ten times more than an easy meal made from wine and cheese alone.

Rock nuts cannot be purchased on embark - they must be gathered from subterranean shrubs once you have discovered the cave river.

Quarry bushes cannot be brewed into alcohol.
