Ingredients Crafting recipe


Chest loot[edit]

Pumpkin seeds can be found in 40.6% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–5, and 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, and in 43.7% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–5.

Pumpkin stems[edit]

Pumpkin 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 pumpkin stem.

Shearing pumpkins[edit]

Shearing an uncarved pumpkin will yield 4 pumpkin seeds.


Wandering traders sell pumpkin seeds for 1 emerald.



Pumpkin seeds can be planted only on farmland. Over time, they grow into a pumpkin stem and produce a pumpkin on any adjacent dirt, grass or farmland block.


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


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


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