Natural generation[edit]

Berry bushes commonly generate in all taiga variants (Taiga, Taiga Hills, and Taiga Mountains). In all snowy taiga variants (Snowy Taiga, Snowy Taiga Hills and Snowy Taiga Mountains) each chunk has 112 chance to generate sweet berry bushes in patches. They also generate in all giant tree taiga variants.

Post-generation[edit]

Sweet berries can be collected from a sweet berry bush by using or breaking it, which yield 1–2 sweet berries in its third growth stage, and 2–3 sweet berries in its final growth stage.

Usage[edit]

Placement[edit]

Placing sweet berries on a grass block, dirt, podzol, coarse dirt, or farmland creates a small sweet berry bush that eventually becomes a fully grown sweet berry bush.

Growth[edit]

A sweet berry bush grows through four stages after it is planted. Its first growth stage is a small bush without any berries. It becomes a grown plant in its second stage, and produces berries in its third and fourth growth stage. The bush does not need any light to grow. Using bone meal on it increases its growth stage by one. The bush can be placed on a 1 block high space, but it cannot grow with a full, non-transparent block above it.

Food[edit]

Sweet berries can be eaten as food items, filling 2 (🍗) hunger points.

Composting[edit]

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

Breeding[edit]

Sweet berries can be fed to foxes to breed them. Foxes are similar to cats when being fed as a wild animal; a sudden movement by the player may cause the fox to flee even if the player holds sweet berries. The baby fox trusts the player and does not flee.

Trading[edit]

Master-level butcher villagers offer to buy 10 sweet berries for an emerald.

Entity movement[edit]

Sweet berry bushes past stage 1 slow down entities (except items) and damage mobs (though foxes are not affected either way). They deal 1♥ damage every 0.5 seconds to the player or other mobs. Entities that move through sweet berry bushes slow down to about 34.05% of their normal speed (similar to a cobweb, which slows down mobs to 15% of normal speed). This makes it impossible to jump a full block while inside the bush.

Mobs at standard block height in a minecart are not damaged when the minecart is pushed through sweet berries. Players in a sweet berry bush take no damage except from horizontal movement, but are unable to jump out of the bush, similar to a cobweb.

Bees[edit]

Bees pollinate sweet berry bushes, and then increase the honey level in beehives and bee nests by 1.

Trivia[edit]

  • Sweet berry bushes absorb fall damage like water.
  • Foxes harvest mature sweet berry bushes that have grown into their third or fourth stage. Unlike how carrots eaten by rabbits are destroyed and not dropped as items, Sweet Berry Bushes harvested by foxes drop as items, although the fox may pick up one of the dropped berries. The bush remains intact, allowing for automatic sweet berry farms.
  • In Bedrock Edition, the sweet berry bush block is a technical block but can be obtained as an item using inventory editors or add-ons. It has the same sprite as the sweet berries item and can be used for both eating and planting.[2]
  • While it is yet to be confirmed, the inspiration for the Sweet berry plant could draw from Lingonberries: an evergreen shrub native to northern parts of the world like Sweden and Norway. Another possible real-world inspiration could be Firethorn: a plant native in Southwest Europe east to Southeast Asia.
