Pumpkin Seeds are an item that can be used to grow pumpkin plants.
Pumpkin stems, when destroyed, may drop 0-3 pumpkin seeds.

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