Apples are food items which fill Hunger.svgHunger.svg units of the hunger bar.


[edit] Obtaining

There are five sources of apples (excluding creative mode):

[edit] As a crafting ingredient

An apple can be used to craft a golden apple or an enchanted golden apple. These recipes don't work on Minecraft Pocket Edition (yet, though Golden Apples may appear in later updates of MCPE.)

[edit] Usability

[edit] Pros

  • Apples are a renewable resource and can be harvested alongside wood.
  • While the player is harvesting wood, they receive apples with next to no added effort.
  • Apples are needed to craft golden apples, which are extremely beneficial food items.
  • Apples can be a good source of food when a player first starts in a new world, as it doesn't consume time planting seeds or killing mobs.

[edit] Cons

  • Apples restore only two hunger (Hunger.svgHunger.svg).
  • Players will become hungry again quickly compared to eating bread or meat due to a low saturation value.
  • Apples take more effort to farm than other foods, and should generally be considered a by-product of wood harvesting.
  • Apples can be an unreliable food source, as even large trees may occasionally drop no apples.
  • Also, farming apples as food requires chopping the wood, then waiting for the leaves to decay on their own: On average, breaking 200 leaf blocks will use 5 food units, to produce one apple that only gives 4 units when eaten.

[edit] History

0.31 (January 11, 2010) Added red apple. When Indev was still new, apples were items brought in to replace brown mushrooms to heal health. The player would spawn in an Indev House by a chest containing 99 apples and other tools. In later updates, the chests inside the House were removed, and apples became impossible to find in a map.
1.0.15 Apples remained impossible to find (without inventory editing or server /give) until Survival Multiplayer, in which one could be obtained by killing Notch. In addition to his inventory, Notch would drop an apple. (Does not seem to work, for example in beta 1.7.3.)
1.8 Apples can now be found in chests in strongholds.
