For other types of seeds, see Seeds (disambiguation).
Melon Seeds are items used to breed Chickens or plant Melon plants by right clicking on Farmland with them, that, strangely, are found in Dungeon or Abandoned Mine Shaft Chests. Melon plants take a while to grow to maturity, but once they do, they will randomly produce Melons in any adjacent space on top of a solid block. Melon plants need enough light to grow or they will pop out of the ground and drop 0-2 Melon Seeds, depending on the maturity of the plant, and will not grow any Melons if there is an opaque block directly above them.
Automatic Melon Farms can be created by planting Melon Seeds where the Melons only have one place to grow, and placing Pistons or Sticky Pistons run by a Redstone Clock next to where the Melons would grow, and Flowing Water flowing into a Hopper on the other side.
