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, or farmland block. 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.

Sounds[edit]

The following sounds section uses an outdated format and should be redone using {{Sound table}}.
You can help by converting the contents of this section into a sound table template.
Examples can be seen at Bee#Sounds and Ladder#Sounds.
The wikicode should be laid out neatly as in these examples for improved readability.

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
In this stage a stem can generate a melon or pumpkin next to
it on an empty dirt, grass or farmland block

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.

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 appearences.
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.
