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 doesn't need any light to grow. Using bone meal on it increases its growth stage by 1. 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. Note that foxes are similar to cats when being fed as a wild animal; if you make any sudden movements (at least what the game qualifies as sudden movements), there is a chance that the fox will be scared away even if you are holding sweet berry(s). 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. Note that in Bedrock Edition, entities may not take damage, due to MCPE-56142. 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.
