Pumpkin stems are a block that can be used to grow pumpkin blocks.

Natural generation[edit]

Pumpkin stems generate naturally in stem farm rooms in woodland mansions.

Pumpkin stems generate in taiga and snowy taiga village farms.



Pumpkin stems, when destroyed, will drop 0–3 pumpkin 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 pumpkin stem.


Pumpkin stems can be planted only on farmland. Over time, they grow into a mature stem and produce a pumpkin on any adjacent dirt, grass or farmland block. If a pumpkin is already occupying an adjacent dirt/grass or farmland spot, the stem will not grow more pumpkins until the pumpkin is removed. A single stem can grow an unlimited number of pumpkins. Pumpkin Stems need a minimum light level of 10 in the block above the stem to grow and give pumpkins. Pumpkin stems are affected by bone meal only with respect to stem growth—bone meal does not help produce the actual pumpkins.

Pumpkin Stem[edit]

A pumpkin stem is the block that is planted on farmland when pumpkin 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 will curve once a pumpkin has grown from it. A fully-grown single stem will connect to any pumpkin in an adjacent square, thus there are 5 possible appearances to a stem. If there are multiple pumpkins it can connect to, it will favor the east, then west, north, and south. When the pumpkin is removed, the stem will return to its straight shape.

Pumpkin stems are technical blocks that cannot be obtained as items.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only] But they can be obtained via inventory editing or add-ons in Bedrock Edition.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
