Sweet berries are a food item that are collected from sweet berry bushes.

Sweet berry bushes are sharp plants used to grow sweet berries.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Sweet berry bushes can be mined instantly with any tool or by hand. A mature sweet berry bush yields 2–3 sweet berries. On its third growth stage, it yields 1–2 sweet berries. Each level of Fortune can increase the amount of drops by 1.

Natural generation[edit]

Berry bushes commonly generate in all taiga variants (Taiga, Taiga Hills, and Taiga Mountains). In all snowy taiga variants (Snowy Taiga, Snowy Taiga Hills and Snowy Taiga Mountains) each chunk has 112 chance to generate sweet berry bushes in patches. They also generate in all giant tree taiga variants. Sweet berry bushes also generate in less scattered patches in mountain meadow.‌[upcoming: BE 1.17.0]

Post-generation[edit]

Sweet berries can be collected from a sweet berry bush by using or breaking it, which yield 1–2 sweet berries in its third growth stage, and 2–3 sweet berries in its final growth stage.

Usage[edit]

Placement[edit]

Placing sweet berries on a grass block, dirt, podzol, coarse dirt, or farmland creates a small sweet berry bush that eventually becomes a fully grown sweet berry bush.

Growth[edit]

A sweet berry bush grows through four stages after it is planted. Its first growth stage is a small bush without any berries. It becomes a grown plant in its second stage, and produces berries in its third and fourth growth stage. The bush needs to be in light level 9 or greater to grow. Using bone meal on it increases its growth stage by one, and at full maturity, ejects the sweet berry item. The bush can be placed on a 1 block high space, but it cannot grow with a full, non-transparent block above it.

Food[edit]

To eat sweet berries, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 2 (🍗) hunger and 0.4‌[JE only] / 1.2‌[BE only] hunger saturation.

Composting[edit]

Placing sweet berries into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.

Breeding[edit]

Sweet berries can be fed to foxes to breed them. Foxes are similar to cats when being fed as a wild animal; a sudden movement by the player may cause the fox to flee even if the player holds sweet berries. The baby fox trusts the player and does not flee.

Trading[edit]

Master-level butcher villagers offer to buy 10 sweet berries for an emerald.

Entity movement[edit]

Sweet berry bushes past stage 1 slow down entities (except items) and damage mobs (though foxes are not affected either way). They deal 1♥ damage every 0.5 seconds to the player or other mobs. Entities that move through sweet berry bushes slow down to about 34.05% of their normal speed (similar to a cobweb, which slows down mobs to 15% of normal speed). This makes it impossible to jump a full block while inside the bush.

Mobs at standard block height in a minecart are not damaged when the minecart is pushed through sweet berries. Players in a sweet berry bush take no damage except from horizontal movement, but are unable to jump out of the bush, similar to a cobweb.

Bees[edit]

Bees pollinate sweet berry bushes, and then increase the honey level in beehives and bee nests by 1.

Sweet berry bush "item"[edit]

Bedrock Edition
?Sweet Berries JE1 BE1.png When obtained via inventory editors or other means such as behavior packs, the sweet berry bush "item" interestingly has the sweet berries sprite.[2] However, it is still titled "Sweet Berry Bush", cannot be eaten, and does not stack with the berries.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Berry", "Berries", "Sweet berry", "Sweet berries", "Berry bush", or "Sweet berry bush" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • Sweet berry bushes absorb fall damage like water.
  • Foxes harvest mature sweet berry bushes that have grown into their third or fourth stage. Unlike how carrots eaten by rabbits are destroyed and not dropped as items, Sweet Berry Bushes harvested by foxes drop as items, although the fox may pick up one of the dropped berries. The bush remains intact, allowing for automatic sweet berry farms.
