Melon is a food item.


When a melon block is broken with any tool, it drops 3-7 melons. Using a tool enchanted with Fortune can wield higher numbers. At Fortune 3, it may drop 3-9 melons.


To start a melon farm, melon seeds are required. Currently melons don't spawn naturally, so to find melon seeds the player must look for seeds in loot chests of skyholds, dungeons, or ruins, or by breaking long grass, of which the melon seed is a rare drop. Melon seeds have to be planted on farmland in order to grow. Once fully grown, every so often, it has a chance of spawning a melon block next to it, from which you then get 3-7 melons.



Eating a melon gives the player 1.5 hunger point back.

  • Added the melon


  • 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 the min function choosing the 9 over the 10 total), result in 9 melons.
