Melon is a type of food in Minecraft Pocket Edition that was added in Update 0.5.0. If destroyed, you can obtain Melon Slices

Obtaining

Before Update 0.9.0, Melons could only be obtained by farming the Melon Seeds dropped by the Nether Reactor, but since then, Melon Blocks can be found growing in Jungle Biomes.

Farming

Melon Farming is similar to Pumpkin Farming, as the crop itself does not yield the Melon, but the block rather is formed next to the crop when it is ready. It is thus possible to farm multiple Melons from one farm.

Crafting

9 Melon Slices => 1 Melon Block

Trivia

  • When broken, Melon blocks only yield 3-7 Melon Slices in contrast to the 9 required to craft it.
  • The fastest tool to break it is an Axe.
    • The Sword, however will use 2 of its durability, so it's better for the player to use a Pickaxe. But it is best to obtain it by hand.
  • Melons will not grow on a stone block placed next to the stalk.
