Melons are blocks that grow from fully grown melon seeds.

Obtaining[edit]

Melons can be mined with any tool, but axes (and swords) are the quickest. Melons can only be obtained using a tool with silk touch, or it will drop 3–7 melon slices.

When a melon block is pushed by a piston, it will break into 3–7 melon slices.

Natural generation[edit]

Melons naturally generate in jungle biomes.

Farming[edit]

See also: Tutorials/Pumpkin and melon farming

Melon seeds can be planted, placing a small stem that will grow over time. Once the stem reaches maturity, it will attempt to spawn a melon block in one of the four immediately adjacent blocks; however, this attempt may fail if the chosen adjacent block is not empty or the block beneath is not dirt, grass, or farmland. Once a stem has connected to a melon, that stem will not produce any further melons until the existing melon is harvested.

Trivia[edit]

  • Any stem adjacent to a melon block will appear to be connected to it, even if the melon was not grown from that stem.[3]
    • Due to this, if a Melon block spawns between two stems, it will connect to both of them. Pumpkins also do this.
  • On the Getsatisfaction.com complete ideas for the Ideas section, it was stated that Watermelons were to be implemented.[4]
    • Despite the fact that the block and the items are called "Melon", "Melon Slice" and "Glistering Melon", they have the appearance of Watermelons and Watermelon Slices, like they were originally supposed to be named.
