A melon slice is a food item that can be eaten by the player.



See also: Pumpkin and melon farming

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

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