Sea pickle colonies generate on the bottom of warm oceans and are found on top of coral blocks in coral reefs. Each chunk has 1⁄6 chance to generate sea pickle colonies. They can be found in groups of 1 up to 4.
Sea pickles may also be found in desert village houses as decorative blocks.
From block loot
A sea pickle colony breaks instantly and drops itself as an item if broken using anything, or if the block below it breaks, dropping as many pickles as there are on the block.

Sea pickles can be placed on top of most solid blocks, as well as non-solid blocks, up to four per block, similarly to turtle eggs. More information regarding placement on transparent blocks can be found at Opacity/Placement.
Sea pickles produce light when underwater. A single pickle produces a light level of 6, and a colony produces an additional 3 levels per pickle (so 4 sea pickles produces a light level of 15). When they produce light, there is a pale green glow at the end of the pickle.
Bone meal can be used on sea pickles if they are underwater, and planted on living coral blocks. This increases their number on that block, and they spread to empty areas underwater above other living coral blocks. They can spread to the original sea pickle's level or one level below, out to a horizontal taxicab distance of 2. Bone meal can be used on sea pickles planted on other blocks, or outside of water, but nothing happens and the bone meal is still consumed.
Sea pickle drops itself when broken with the correct tool if any is assigned. Refer to § From block loot for more information.

- Pyrosomes are real-life tunicates with blue-green bioluminescence. They are also commonly called sea pickles. In spite of this, sea pickles in Minecraft seem to visually resemble real-life sea squirts more than real-life sea pickles.
- Sea Pickles might generate in desert village houses to resemble cups, mugs, or miniature pottery.
