Trivia
 The melon and the glistering melon are flipped 90 degrees compared to each other.
 In the image files of Mine Blocks, melon is referred to as a melon slice, while its id and in game name are both melon.
 The algorithm for deciding how many melons a melon block drops is
min(9, 3+random(0 to 4 inclusive)+random(0 to fortuneLevel inclusive))
. Although this means that both Fortune 2 and 3 have the same maximum drop of 9 melon slices, Fortune 3 is more likely to get this maximum drop. If we ignore the first random function and assume it gives 4, in total 7 so far, then with Fortune 2 there is a 1/3 chance of getting +2, so 9 in total, while with Fortune 3 there is a 1/2, because both +2 and +3(which would result in themin
function choosing the 9 over the 10 total), result in 9 melons.
