An enchanted apple (A.K.A a notch apple or enchanted golden apple) is one of the most powerful food items in Minecraft.

Overview

Enchanted apples could previously only be obtained through crafting. After The Combat Update, and subsequent updates across other platforms, they can now only be crafted in the "legacy console edition". However, they may still be found (albeit rarely) in chests.

Previously, these apples were crafted by placing an Apple on a Crafting table and surrounding it with blocks of gold (see crafting section), but the crafting recipe was removed in 1.9. Within the in-game inventory, they are still called "golden apples", but with a holographic text and a glow effect covering them, like any other enchanted item. Even when these apples were craftable, they were still the most difficult food item to obtain because of the number of gold blocks that were required to make one.

Appearance

The appearance, which separates the enchanted apple from the Golden Apple, is similar to other enchanted items since it has a purple glow. When hovering the cursor over the item, the text glows purple as well. This does not happen with any other enchanted item.

Beneficial effects

Enchanted apples are much more powerful than golden apples. When consumed, they heal two Hunger points and grant the player a few beneficial effects, including:

Crafting

  • Enchanted apples are no longer craftable in any version of Minecraft as of 1.9 besides the "Legacy Console Edition"
     

The enchanted apple is one of the hardest items to craft, as it required a large quantity of gold. Each enchanted apple required eight blocks of gold, equivalent to 72 Gold Ingots, equivalent to 648 Gold Nuggets. This made traditional Zombie Pigman golden nugget farms practically useless when trying to farm gold to make these apples.
