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.
Melon Stem[edit | edit source]
The melon stem appears to rise up from the ground as it grows, turning from green to brown. A single stem will connect to any melon in an adjacent square, whether grown there or placed there. If there are multiple melons it can connect to, it will favor the east, then west, north, and south. When the melon is removed, the stem will return to an upright position.
