Oak and dark oak leaves have 0.5% (1⁄200) chance of dropping an apple when decayed or broken. This amounts to approximately 25% chance to get an apple from an oak tree and 60% chance from a dark oak tree. Breaking leaves with a tool enchanted with the fortune enchantment will increase the chances of dropping an apple: 0.556% (1⁄180) with Fortune I, 0.625% (1⁄160) with Fortune II, and 0.833% (1⁄120) with Fortune III.
Apples can be found in 33.7% of stronghold altar chests, 61.6% of village blacksmith chests, 74.3% of igloo chests, and 50.0% of stronghold storeroom chests, all in stacks of 1–3; and in 83.8% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.
In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 33.6% of stronghold altar chests and 41.7% of stronghold storeroom chests in stacks of 1–3, and in all bonus chests in stacks of 1–2. In Bedrock Edition 1.3[upcoming] they can be found in 32.8% of stronghold altar chests in stacks of 1–3.

|January 11, 2010||Added apples. When Indev was still new, apples were items brought in to replace brown mushrooms to heal health.
