Name

melon

Melon (named melon slice in Console Edition) is a food item that can be eaten by the player.

Obtaining

Drops

See also: Pumpkin and melon farming

Melons drop from melon blocks which generate naturally in jungles or can be grown from melon seeds found among chest loot in abandoned mineshafts, dungeons and woodland mansions.

Each melon block normally drops 3–7 melons when broken or pushed by a piston, or 9 melons when broken by shears.[upcoming 1.1] Breaking a melon block with a tool with the Fortune enchantment will increase the potential number of drops by 1 per level, to a maximum of 9 melons. Breaking a melon using an item with the Silk Touch enchantment will cause the melon to drop the melon block instead of melon slices.

Usage

Food

See also: Hunger management

Eating a melon restores 2 (Hunger.svg) points of hunger and 1.2 points of hunger saturation.
