Usage[edit]

Farming[edit]

See also: Tutorials/Pumpkin and melon farming

Melon seeds can be planted on farmland. Over time, they grow into a stem and produce a Melon on any adjacent Dirt, Grass or Farmland block. If a melon is already occupying an adjacent dirt/grass or farmland spot, the stem will not grow any more melons until the melon is removed. A single stem can grow an unlimited number of melons. Like other seeds, they need a certain amount of light to grow. Melon Seeds are affected by bone meal only with respect to stem growth -- bone meal does not help produce the actual melons.
