Melons in Minecraft

Melons are the blocky equivalent of the real-life fruit in Minecraft. These fruit blocks grow from melon seeds and are usually found in abandoned mine shaft chests. Melons were first introduced in the Minecraft Java Edition Beta 1.8 “Adventure Update”.

A Melon Block can be harvested from a Melon Stem, which will give you some Melon Slices. These can be consumed as food and will restore your hunger levels but they can also be used as part of other crafting recipes like Glistering Melon Slices.

How to Grow Melons in Minecraft

Step 1: Prepare the Materials

To grow melons in Minecraft, you’ll need the following items:

  • Melon Seeds
  • Any kind of Hoe
  • Water Bucket
  • Bone Meal (Optional)

How to get Melon Seeds in Minecraft

Melons can originally be found in abandoned mine shaft chests, but now they can be obtained in savannah/desert villages or Jungle Biomes. They can also be found in dungeons and woodland mansions.

Wandering Traders will also offer you Melon Seeds in exchange for 1 emerald. No matter where you obtain your Melon Seeds, all it takes is one seed to start growing your own Melon farm.

How to make a Hoe

You can make a hoe out of wood, stone, diamond, gold, etc. Any type will do the job. You’ll also need 2 Sticks. Place 2 of the material you chose in the left and middle slot of the top row on your Crafting Table. Then place two sticks directly underneath the middle-top slot.

Take the hoe from the result box and drop it off in your inventory.

How to make a Water Bucket

To make a water bucket in Minecraft, collect three iron ingots, open the crafting table, and place the ingots in this shape.

Water Bucket

Once you have your bucket, find a body of water and collect some by using your Bucket on it.

Step 2: Prepare the Land

Melon seeds can only be planted on tilled land and somewhere with a light level of 9. That’s why we need a hoe. Choose a suitable location and then use the hoe on a dirt block or grass block to till it and make sure you leave at least one block adjacent to the tilled land open for the melon to grow in.

Next, make sure you hydrate the land using your bucket of water. Place a water source block next to the tilled land so your melons can be watered. You can use more water blocks if you desire.

Step 3: Plant the Melon seeds

Now that you have your land preparation done, you can plant the melon seeds by equipping them and clicking on the tilled land. Once that’s done, you can wait for the melon plant to start growing melon stems.

You can also speed up the process by using bone meal on the plant. Once the melon stem has fully matured, it will begin producing Melon Fruits at intervals of 10-30 minutes.

Step 4: Harvest the Melon

After the Melon has produced its fruits, you can collect Melon Slices by breaking it. You can eat it or craft the Melon slices into Melon seeds to plant. Or you can use a tool enchanted with silk touch to obtain Melon Blocks instead of slices.
