Melon seeds are an item that can be used to grow melon stems.


Chest loot[edit]

Melon seeds can be found in 18.5% of dungeon chests, 31.6% of chest minecarts in Mineshafts, and 18.5% of woodland mansion chests, all in stacks of 2–4.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 33.3% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

Melon stems[edit]

Melon stems, when destroyed, will drop 0–3 seeds. The odds of dropping 0, 1, 2 and 3 seeds are 100125, 20125, 4125 and 1125, respectively. In the long run, this comes to 0.248 seeds dropped per melon stem.
