Natural generation[edit]

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

Pumpkin stems generate in taiga and snowy taiga village farms.

Pumpkins can be found in multiple biomes in groups

Trading[edit]

Wandering traders sell pumpkin seeds for 1 emerald.

Post-generation[edit]

Shearing an uncarved pumpkin yields 4 pumpkin seeds in Java Edition or 1 unit of pumpkin seeds in Bedrock Edition.

Usage[edit]

Farming[edit]

Pumpkin seeds can be planted only on farmland. Over time, they grow into a stem and produce a pumpkin on any adjacent dirt, grass block, farmland, podzol or coarse dirt. If a pumpkin is already occupying an adjacent dirt/grass or farmland spot, the stem does 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 seeds are affected by bone meal only with respect to stem growth; bone meal does not help produce the actual pumpkins.

Breeding[edit]

Pumpkin 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, pumpkin seeds can be used to tame parrots.

Composting[edit]

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

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 yellow once fully grown.

The stem curves once a pumpkin has grown from it. A fully-grown single stem connects 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 favors the east, then west, north, and south. When the pumpkin is removed, the stem returns to its straight shape.

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

0 Freshly planted stem
1 First stage of growth
2 Second stage of growth
3 Third stage of growth
4 Fourth stage of growth

From this version up until 14w08a, overgrown pumpkin stems start to draw from the texture below them on the texture atlas, in much the same way they previously did with terrain.png. However, as texture atlases are unstable and textures tend to change positions as new blocks and textures are added, overgrown stems change the texture they draw from every time new textures are added, which includes when textures added by mods.

The item form of block ID 104 (pumpkin stem) has been removed from the game. It can no longer exist in inventories, only as a block in the world.

Prior to this update, the base of the pumpkin stem would stay the same while the long attaching section would differ, resulting in four possible attached stem appearances.
Invalid overgrown pumpkin stems have now 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 existing such stems cause a game crash.
