Update 0.4.0

Wheat Seeds are Items that are used in Farming. They were added in Update 0.4.0.


Wheat Seeds can be obtained by mining Tall Grass, and Double Tall Grass. They can also be obtained by breaking Wheat Crops.


When planted on a Block of hydrated Farmland, Wheat Seeds will slowly grow into a mature wheat crop. This process can be sped up by continuously using Bone Meal on it. It can also be used in Breeding and attracting Chickens.


  • Wheat grows much faster in warm Biomes (excluding Deserts and Mesa Biomes) and in hydrated Farmland.
  • Wheat Seeds can also be planted in unhydrated farmland, but will not grow as fast as in hydrated farmland.
  • As of Update 0.12.1, Wheat crops will always drop Seeds, irrespective of the growth stage.
    • Also, as of Update 0.12.1, Grass Blocks no longer drop seeds when a Hoe is used on them.
  • Wheat has 4 stages of growth, meaning the Player needs 3 Bone Meal to make it harvestable after it has just been planted.
    • However, in Creative Mode, the Player only needs to apply 1 Bone Meal, irrespective of the growth stage.
