Issues relating to "Melon" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.
- Making melon slices into a melon block is inefficient as you use 9 melon slices, and when you break the block you get a lower melon return rate.
- In the Pocket Edition, melon blocks cannot be destroyed by explosions, which is possibly a bug.
