Minecraft (Pocket Edition)




Melons are found in a few biomes, and are plentiful near Jungle Biomes. They can be easily broken and obtained by striking them with anything.

Usage / Purpose

The only use for Melon, other than for looking impressive in your garden, is as a food source.

Drops / Yields

Melons drop multiple Melon Slices, which are consumed as a source of food. The Melon Slices can further be Crafted to yield Melon Seeds.

When you harvest a Melon the Melon stem remains undamaged to grow another Melon. This makes Melons, like Pumpkins, an easily renewable source of food.


Melons can be stored in stacks of up to 64 units.


When eaten, Melon Slices restore health points.



Melon can be grown, but it can also be generated back into its original form from nine Melon Slices. This is particularly useful if you smashed a bunch of Melons before your big party but then realized you wanted an unsmashed Melon to impress your guests with. Or if you require compact storage of an excessive inventory of Melon Slices.
