Melon seeds are an item that can be used to grow melon stems.
Melon stems, when destroyed, will drop 0–3 seeds. The odds of dropping 0, 1, 2 and 3 seeds are 100⁄125, 20⁄125, 4⁄125 and 1⁄125, respectively. In the long run, this comes to 0.248 seeds dropped per melon stem.
Melon seeds can be planted only on farmland. Over time, they grow into a full melon stem.
Like other seeds, melon seeds can be used to tame parrots.
Placing melon seeds into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
