Apples restore two full points of hunger. But WAIT! They can also be crafted with gold into golden apples – which heal the same amount of hunger but give you health regeneration and absorption buffs on top. Horses like apples too, and feeding one to a baby horse will help it grow up big and strong.

Duncan Geere[1]

Apples are food items that can be eaten by the player.

Obtaining[edit]

Trees[edit]

Oak and dark oak leaves have 0.5% (1200) chance of dropping an apple when decayed or broken. This amounts to approximately 25% (14) 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 increases the chances of dropping an apple: 0.556% (1180) with Fortune I, 0.625% (1160) with Fortune II, and 0.833% (1120) with Fortune III.

Natural generation[edit]

Apples can be found in 33.5% of stronghold altar chests, 47.5% of stronghold storeroom chests, 59.8% of village weaponsmith chests, and 70.4% of igloo chests, all in stacks of 1–3; in 74.2% of plains village house chests in stacks of 1–5; and in 83.8% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 32.5% of stronghold altar chests and 40.0% of stronghold storeroom chests in stacks of 1–3, and in all bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

Trading[edit]

Apprentice-level farmer villagers have a 50%‌[Bedrock Edition only] or 23[Java Edition only] chance of selling 4 apples as part of their trades.

Usage[edit]

To eat an apple, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 4 (Hunger.svgHunger.svg) and 2.4 hunger saturation.
