Apples are food items that can be eaten by the player.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Trees[edit | edit source]

Oak and dark oak leaves have 0.5% (1200) chance of dropping an apple. This amounts to approximately 25% chance to get an apple from an oak tree and 60% chance from a dark oak tree. Breaking leaves with a tool enchanted with the fortune enchantment will increase the chances of dropping an apple: 0.556% (1180) with Fortune I, 0.625% (1160) with Fortune II, and 0.833% (1120) with Fortune III.

In Pocket Edition, the chance is higher.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Apples can be found in 33.7% of stronghold altar chests, 61.6% of village blacksmith chests, 50.0% of stronghold storeroom chests, all in stacks of 1–3, and in 55.7% of bonus chests, in stacks of 2–3.

Trading[edit | edit source]

Villager farmers may offer to sell apples in exchange for emeralds. 5 apples can be bought per emerald as one of their third tier trades.

Usage[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

January 11, 2010 Added apples 1.3.2 apple.png. When Indev was still new, apples were items brought in to replace brown mushrooms to heal health. The player would spawn in an Indev House by a chest containing 99 apples and other tools. In later updates, the chests inside the house were removed (and eventually the house itself), making apples impossible to obtain.
? A player named JTE jokingly put that Notch dropped an apple when killed at the bottom of a crafting guide he made.[1]
This is presumed to be why Notch programmed his avatar to drop an apple when killed (see below).
1.0.15 Apples remained impossible to obtain (without inventory editing) until Survival Multiplayer, in which one could be obtained by killing Notch. In addition to his inventory, Notch would drop an apple.
1.7.3 Notch no longer drops an apple on death.
1.8 Apples can now be found in chests in strongholds.
