Mushroom blocks are solid blocks that make up huge mushrooms. There are 3 kinds of mushroom blocks: red mushroom block, brown mushroom block and mushroom stem.

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

Huge mushroom blocks are most quickly broken with an axe, dropping 0–2 mushroom items of the respective type. In Java Edition, only cap blocks drop mushroom items, while in Bedrock Edition stem blocks drop mushrooms as well. Fortune does not affect the drop rate of mushrooms in any form.

The blocks themselves can be retrieved only by using a tool enchanted with Silk Touch. Mining the mushroom cap or stem yields a block with the cap or stem texture, respectively, on all faces.

Additionally in Java Edition, if two similar mushroom blocks are placed next to each other and one of them is broken, the side of the other block that it was facing reveals the pore texture. This is because the side of these blocks change texture if they touch another block of the same type.

Mushroom blocks can be moved and are not broken by a piston.

  1. Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. For more information, see Breaking § Speed.

Natural generation[]

Main article: Huge mushroom

Mushroom blocks generate as part of huge mushroom structures.

Creative inventory[]

In Java Edition, the brown and red mushroom blocks as well as the mushroom stem are available in the Creative inventory.

In Bedrock Edition, all-sided cap, stem and pore blocks are available in the Creative inventory. Other variants can be obtained by the /give command or by inventory editing. For the command type /give @p (red_ or brown_)mushroom_block 1 (ID value). For the ID, type a number between 0-10. Anything between 11 and 13 looks the same, but doesn't stack. 14 and 15 have either the mushroom block texture on all 6 sides, or the mushroom stem texture on all six sides.

Usage[]

Fuel[]

Mushroom blocks can be used as fuel, smelting 1.5 items per block.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Composting[]

Mushroom blocks can be used in the composter with an 85% chance to make a new layer.

Note Blocks[]

Mushroom blocks can be placed under note blocks to produce "bass" sound.

History[]

Java Edition Beta
June 14, 2011Notch showed a picture of a Beta 1.7 change-list. Although it was completely blurred out and was at first thought of as a joke, Notch later stated that one of the pictures with the new lighting system and the change list had a secret in them.
One place where people discussed it was on the Minecraft Forums, where it was discovered that the tabs at the top of the change list, which were partly covered, could be decoded based on the one-pixel tall pattern available in the image.[1]
After a user named "tmcaffeine" on the forums successfully decoded the image, the tabs read: ExperienceOrb.java, changelist.txt, Level.java, Tile.java, HugeMushroomTile.jav(a?), HugeMushroomFeature.(java?), RandomLevelSource(cut).[2]
This led people to believe that huge mushrooms would be added, and indeed, later on, Notch revealed a screenshot on Google+ in which two huge mushrooms could be seen as well as a village.
