So right now, there's a 1 in 200 chance of "oak" leaves dropping apples. According to the wiki, this supposedly increases if the tree is blown up. But what if there was also a greater chance of apples dropping if the tree was grown with bonemeal? Maybe 1 in 150, or even 1 in 100, doubling the chances. It's not too game breaking, because regular apples don't heal a lot, and golden apples are still fairly hard to make. Bonemeal can also be hard to obtain, because skeletons are horrible.
Golden apples only need 8 gold nuggets,that means 1 gold ingot is enough to make them.
Bonemeal is easy to obtain, skeletons are easy, you only need atleast stone sword and steel chesplate you can go masskilling skeletons.
