Natural generation[edit]

Melon stems generate naturally in stem farm inside woodland mansions.

Melon stems can generate in savanna and desert village farms.

Usage[edit]

Farming[edit]

Melon seeds can be planted only on farmland. Over time, they grow into a stem and produce a melon on any adjacent dirt, grass block, farmland, podzol or coarse dirt. If a melon is already occupying an adjacent dirt/grass or farmland spot, the stem does not grow any more melons until the melon is removed. A single stem can grow an unlimited number of melons. Like other seeds, they need a certain amount of light to grow and produce melons. Melon seeds are affected by bone meal only with respect to stem growth; bone meal does not help produce the actual melons.

Breeding[edit]

Melon seeds can be used to breed chickens, lead chickens around, and make baby chickens grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.

Taming[edit]

Like other seeds, melon seeds can be used to tame parrots.

Composting[edit]

Placing melon seeds into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.

Melon Stem[edit]

A melon stem is the block that is planted on farmland when melon seeds are used on it. It starts underground, and rises up as the plant grows. The stem is colored green when young, and then brown once fully grown.

The stem curves once a melon has grown from it. A fully-grown single stem connects to any melon in an adjacent square, thus there are 5 possible appearances to a stem. If there are multiple melons it can connect to, it favors the east, then west, north, and south. When the melon is removed, the stem returns to its straight shape.

In Java Edition, melon stems are technical blocks that cannot be obtained directly as items in the inventory. In Bedrock Edition, they can be obtained via inventory editing or add-ons.

Block data[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, melon stems use the following data values:

Value Stage
0 Freshly planted stem
1 First stage of growth
2 Second stage of growth
3 Third stage of growth
4 Fourth stage of growth
5 Fifth stage of growth
6 Sixth stage of growth
7 Seventh stage of growth

Stem (texture) JE1 BE1.png The block form of melon stems, when in the inventory, shows a gray texture.
Pre-release 2 ;)Melon stems can now be grown faster using bone meal.

1.4.212w36aChickens now use wheat seeds, melon seeds, and pumpkin seeds, instead of wheat to breed.

Stem Age 8 13w02a.png Stem Age 9 13w02a.png Stem Age 10 13w02a.png Stem Age 11 13w02a.png Stem Age 12 13w02a.png Stem Age 13 13w02a.png Stem Age 14 13w02a.png Stem Age 15 13w02a.png This also affects melon stems of ages 8–15, which are likewise stretched to accommodate its predicted size.

13w03aMelon stems are no longer squished or stretched to account for age.[1]
Stem Age 8 13w03a.png Stem Age 9 13w03a.png Stem Age 10 13w03a.png Stem Age 11 13w03a.png Stem Age 12 13w03a.png Stem Age 13 13w03a.png Stem Age 14 13w03a.png Stem Age 15 13w03a.png Melon stems with age values 8 through 15 now show a tinted trapdoor texture.
From this version up until 14w08a, overgrown melon stems start to draw from the texture below them on the texture atlas, in much the same way they previously did with terrain.png. However, as texture atlases are unstable and textures tend to change positions as new blocks and textures are added, overgrown stems change the texture they draw from every time new textures are added, which includes when textures added by mods.
13w09aStem Age 8 13w09a.png Stem Age 9 13w09a.png Stem Age 10 13w09a.png Stem Age 11 13w09a.png Stem Age 12 13w09a.png Stem Age 13 13w09a.png Stem Age 14 13w09a.png Stem Age 15 13w09a.png Melon stems with age values 8–15 now show a tinted birch wood texture.

1.7.213w37aAdded the /setblock command, allowing for invalid stem ages to be placed in the world without using external editors. This also allows them to be obtained in earlier versions via backdating.
The item form of block ID 105 (melon stem) has been removed from the game. It can no longer exist in inventories, only as a block in the world.

1.814w10aStem Age 8 14w10a.png Stem Age 9 14w10a.png Stem Age 10 14w10a.png Stem Age 11 14w10a.png Melon stems with data values 8–11 now display a tinted attached stem, with 8 facing west, 9 facing east, 10 facing north and 11 facing south.
Invalid melon stems with data values 12-15 now crash the game.
14w25aStem Age 0 14w25a.png Stem Age 1 14w25a.png Stem Age 2 14w25a.png Stem Age 3 14w25a.png Stem Age 4 14w25a.png Stem Age 5 14w25a.png Stem Age 6 14w25a.png Stem Age 7 14w25a.png Melon stems now render as a single diagonal plane, or, in the case of attached stems, a diagonal and orthogonal plane.
Attached Stem (N) JE3.png Attached Stem (E) JE3.png Attached Stem (S) JE3.png Attached Stem (W) JE3.png The attached melon stem model now fully rotates to the direction the stem points. Prior to this update, the base of the melon stem would stay the same while the long attaching section would differ, resulting in four possible attached stem appearances.
Invalid overgrown melon stems have effectively been removed from the game, as attempting to place an out of range stem via /setblock creates a stem of age 0 and loading a world with such stems existing causes a game crash.
14w26aStem Age 0 14w26a.png Stem Age 1 14w26a.png Stem Age 2 14w26a.png Stem Age 3 14w26a.png Stem Age 4 14w26a.png Stem Age 5 14w26a.png Stem Age 6 14w26a.png Stem Age 7 14w26a.png Attached Stem (N) JE4.png Attached Stem (E) JE4.png Attached Stem (S) JE4.png Attached Stem (W) JE4.png Melon stems now correctly render as crosses again.[2]

14w28aAll melon stems appearing attached regardless of age or any actual attachment has been fixed. However, melon stems still appear attached to adjacent fruits regardless of age due to a similar bug.[4]
14w34dMelon seeds can no longer be used for breeding chickens.
