This feature is exclusive to Java Edition, Bedrock Edition and PlayStation 4 Edition.

Sweet berries are a food item that are collected from sweet berry bushes.


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

Natural generation[edit]

Sweet berries can be found growing in taiga biomes.

Sweet berries can be found in 40.6% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–7.‌[Java Edition only]


The berry bushes have a hurt effect on animals (apart from foxes) that touch or try to run through them. Planting bushes around an animal effectively traps them inside and makes it easy to tame them.


Placing sweet berries on the ground will create the sapling of a sweet berry bush which after some time will grow into a full grown sweet berry bush, which can later also be harvested for more berries. It is also important to note that sweet berries will not grow if they have a block directly above them.


Sweet berries can be eaten as food items, filling 2 (Hunger.svg) hunger points. It is currently unknown what its saturation is.


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


Sweet Berries can be fed to foxes to breed them. The baby fox will trust the player and not run away from them.‌[Java Edition only]


Master-level Butcher villagers will buy 10 sweet berries for an emerald.
