Top 10 Best Crops in Minecraft

Updated on:


This article will list the Top 10 Best Crops in Minecraft, whether it’s for Food to help you in your survival or to craft resources and items to help us in achieving certain tasks.

Farming crops is one of the most important things that you’ll be doing first in Minecraft.

10. Pumpkins Crops in Minecraft

You can find pumpkin seeds in the Village chest, Mineshaft chest, or Dungeon chest. You can also acquire Pumpkin seeds from Pumpkins if you find one naturally spawned in any Biome.

Pumpkins have a variety of uses. In addition to the usual practices of composting and trading, people primarily use pumpkins to create Iron Golems, Snow Golems, Helmets for protection against Endermen, craft Pumpkin Pies, and make Jack O’ Lanterns

A variety of beneficial uses for Pumpkins, which make it to the top 10 crops due to the multiple things you can do with them.

9. Sweet Berries Crops in Minecraft

Sweet Berries thrive exclusively in Taiga Biomes, and you can harvest them from the Sweet Berry Bush

When you plant Sweet Berries, they will grow into a bush. These bushes are particularly useful as a defense mechanism because they poison a player or mob upon passing through them.

Though it doesn’t deal any significant damage it’s more of an annoyance and a decrease in movement speed.

Sweet Berry Bushes are a great way to make Mobs not pass through a certain area because in Minecraft, Mobs tend to avoid these bushes and look for a way to go around them especially enemy mobs, if they can’t, they’ll not chase you and won’t cross the Berry Bushes at all which makes you safe as Berry Bushes act as a wall, but will damage if you ever try to pass through it yourself or mob.

8. Melons

Melons are a nice food source for collecting because they drop 3-7 Melons upon breaking a Melon Block, getting stacks of these is fairly quick and easy.

Though, Melons would require a Melon seed, common spots that Melon seeds naturally spawn in are in the Dungeon chest & Mineshaft chest which are fairly challenging to find at the start of the game.

Melons provide an unlimited source of Food and replenish only 1 hunger bar but due to their large quantities when harvesting, it’s reasonable.

Melons, primarily used to create a Glistering Melon Slice in potion making, also find use in composting and trading.

. This slice was once brewed into a Potion of Healing.

7. Carrots Crops in Minecraft

You can find Carrots in any Village and Shipwreck locations, which are common spawn areas for Carrots found in large quantities, similar to Potatoes.

Growing Carrots is as simple as growing Wheat and Potatoes, the profit is also beneficial as Carrots that are ready to be harvested will give you 1-5 Carrots.

Carrots are used when crafting Rabbit stew, breeding, composting, or trading.

The major usage is crafting Golden Carrots.

Upon eating one, it replenishes 6 hunger bars, Golden Carrots are also mostly used in potion making, specifically to brew the Potion of Night Vision, an important potion for adventuring under the Sea or in the dark.

You can also craft a Carrot on a stick with a normal carrot for Pig riding.

6. Potatoes

You can find them in Shipwrecks and Villages, which commonly spawn Potatoes and are locations where Potatoes are mostly found in large quantities.

These are a great secondary food source as the profit is 2x more than what you plant – fully grown potatoes can drop 1 to 4 potatoes upon harvesting and you don’t lose out.

You can use potatoes to trade, breed, and compost.

You can also bake potatoes in a furnace which replenishes your 5 hunger bars and also being an ingredient to craft Rabbit stew.

5. Sugar Cane

Because sugar canes are essential ingredients for enchanting, they play a role in creating paper, which, in turn, crafts books that can be further crafted into a bookshelf.

It can also be used to make sugar, which is important for crafting the Potion of Swiftness and making cake

Sugar Canes are also utilized to create underwater pathways. You can place them underwater on a block that is 1 block high in a one-path-only area.

Water can’t destroy Sugar Cane so it creates an Air pocket for you to walk normally like you were walking on land.

It’s more of a technique if wanting to move underwater, and also an aesthetic to your world.

4. Nether Warts

Nether Warts in Minecraft are a key ingredient in brewing potions.

Locating Nether Warts can be challenging because you need to find a Nether Fortress and locate the generated farm within the huge Nether Fortress.

Although, if you have found one, you can grab the Nether Warts and bring it back to your World which you would need soul sand to grow the Nether Warts in.

3. Bamboo

Bamboos thrive in Jungle Biomes, and Pandas inhabit these areas as well.

In the Jungle Biome, you can easily find bamboo due to its tall nature. It grows in large amounts, creating a thick field of bamboo scattered throughout the area.

Bamboos are the fastest-growing plant & crop in Minecraft.

I consider this an important crop because you can craft an item that would ease some complex building tasks in our survival world.

The item is known as Scaffolding. To craft Scaffolding, you would need 6 Bamboo and a string.

Scaffoldings are tools to help you build tall structures, like a 10-floor tall house, a statue, or whatever of some sort that would require you to go higher than ground level.

Bamboo can also serve as fuel in the furnace and is the sole method for breeding Pandas.

2. Apples

In Minecraft, Apples are not classified as crops because you cannot directly grow and harvest them. However, we can technically consider them as crops in nature, as they come from trees. In Minecraft, apples randomly drop from decaying leaves, so acquiring one is not certain right away, unlike actual crops. Apples can only drop from an Oak or Dark Oak tree.

I included Apples in the list because Wheat seeds may be the first to get, but Apples are the 2nd common food resource that you’ll come across which you’ll be seeing a lot depending on where you spawn and how many trees you destroy.

With the concept of Apples dropping from the specified tree, you can happily build tree farms to collect Apples.

Apples are crucial because we need them to craft Golden Apples. Golden Apples, a food concept created in Minecraft, provide a 5-second healing regeneration upon consumption—a key item required in near-death situations.

1. Wheat

Wheat is most likely the first crop in the game that you’ll be getting, simply because the process of trying to get Wheat Seeds takes a few minutes of breaking grass.

It’s the fastest seed to get because you’re most likely to spawn in a world where grass is probably a block away from you.

Unlike other crops, finding Potatoes or Carrots in Villages depends on your initial spawn location in your first Minecraft world. Most often, you’ll spawn in a biome with grass, making Wheat the straightforward first option for food, breeding, and trading.

3 Wheat makes 1 bread that gives you 3 hunger bars when eaten.

It only takes 1 to 6 in-game days for the Wheat to grow depending on how hydrated the crops are.
