Each melon block normally drops 3–7 melons when broken or pushed by a piston, or 9 melons when broken by shears.[Bedrock Edition only] 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.
