  • Regeneration II (1♥ every 25 ticks, ♥ × 0.4 per second) for 5 seconds (long enough to heal 4♥♥ points of damage)

Curing zombie villagers[edit]

A golden apple and a potion of weakness can be used to convert a zombie villager into a regular villager.

Horses[edit]

Golden apples can be used to improve the chances of taming a horse by 10%, for breeding horses and for speeding up the growth of baby horses by 4 minutes.

Piglins[edit]

Piglins are attracted to golden apples and run toward any golden apples on the ground, and inspect it for 6 to 8 seconds before putting it in their inventory. However, piglins do not eat golden apples (or any food).
