How about we add fruit trees to Minecraft?

More fruit, more trees, more hunger bars filled, we all win!

Why this wouldn't make the game impossibly easy: Fruit in any case, no matter what the kind, would only fill 1/2 a hunger bar. However, fruit trees spawn 5% of the time, so if you're just walking around exploring and forgot your food, it's not hopeless.

Each tree would contain 7 fruits of its kind.

Types:
-Apple
-Peach
-Orange
-Banana

And perhaps some small shrubs containing fruit?

I only want more fruits added so they can be drinks for a hydration bar. If not, then we have way too many food types.

Mojang is already on it. they said they'd add a 1/200 chance of getting a fruit from a tree.
Helped you? Maybe made you laugh? You agree with me? Then click the +1 button! C'mon you know you want to!

Thats not the same. I mean trees with varieties of fruit.

I would agree with this if there were poison fruits to balance it out. So you basically had to learn which fruits are safe and which aren't, and which fruit is poisonous is random in every save so you couldn't learn first before you play.

It's just food is really, really easy to get so if fruit trees were to be added it needs that balance.

I think it would work well. There are already mods available and it would brighten up the tree's :P Maybe you could make apple pie with them...yum :)

I like the idea of fruit trees too. I would like to be able to plant the apples we find and get an apple tree. It would be nice too when you are out and forget or run out of food. I would also like to be able to place the fruit on blocks so it can also add some items to decorate our houses with, fruit on the table.

Maybe you could combine fruit into a bowl (like a soup bowl) and it would only be edible in the fashion of a cake(after being placed down). That would be for looks and for eating.

I think that apples should be craftable into apple seeds, which grow in stages like wheat and melon stems and planted on farmland, but would grow into a tree. It would be an apple tree, roughly the same size as swamp trees. The apple tree would have "apple tree leaves" just like birch trees have birch leaves. These leaves would have a 25% of dropping an apple, making apple farming not overpowered( even though apples are a bad source of food, compared to even mushroom stew or chicken). The trees would take two or three minecraft days to fully grow. The wood of the apple tree would not be special in any way.

Personally, I'm fine with there just being apples. But 1/200 is a bit of a long shot if you want to use the apples. Making them farmable would also open up the doors to a pie. Made just like cake, but with 6 wheat and 3 apples.

Apple trees could work for the forest biome.
Banana trees could work for the rainforest biome if it ever gets reintroduced, along with a cacoa shrub/tree.
Possibly berry shrubs would be nice in the forest and plains biome.
Though that is pretty much enough 'small' foods.

The real issue with food is that it's all the same. It restores some hunger.
If food became unique and each item had something to set it apart from the others it would not be that bad.
(Used in certain alchemy recipes for example.)
