The Caves & Cliffs update introduced many new features to Minecraft. Glow Berries were among the items the patch added to the sandbox title, and they serve a number of unique purposes.
Essentially, due to their ability to emit light, they can act as both a light source and a food source. Additionally, players can farm Cave Vines/Glow Vines (can be scaled) using Glow Berries.
To find these items, players will need to explore Lush Caves, a new biome included in the Caves & Cliffs update. In the next section, you can find a more detailed explanation of how to get Glow Berries and how to use them.
Details on how to get Glow Berries in Minecraft
Listed below are two different methods through which you can obtain the berries in the game:
1) In lush caves
Glowing Berries are often seen hanging from vines on the ceilings of Lush Caves. You can right-click items and harvest them by doing the same. This is the main method through which you can obtain Glow Berries within Minecraft.
2) As chest loot
Another way to get the edible items is through looting chests found in Mineshafts and Ancient Cities. Finding and opening chests in the aforementioned locations will provide a chance to receive the berries. However, it should be noted that getting them through this method is not guaranteed, and there is only a small chance that you will be satisfied with the results.
Once you have obtained the Glow Berries, it is recommended to start a farm to continue collecting them without putting much effort. Basically you will have to place a berry on the bottom of any block with air below it or at least a space of two to 26 blocks. Subsequently, a Cave Vine will soon appear, producing the fruit.
Guide to Using Glow Berries in Minecraft
The use of glow berries is described in the points below:
1) As food
You can consume Glow Berries as a food source in Minecraft. If consumed, they will replenish a total of two hunger points each. While this isn’t a huge amount, it could be useful in a few different scenarios. For example, if you are short of food, you can resort to times to recover your health.
2) fox breeding
Another good use for Glow Berries in Minecraft is to make foxes breed. You only have to feed them to two foxes that are very close to each other. Soon, you will see a heart symbol appear above the foxes’ heads, which means that they have entered Love Mode. A baby fox will introduce itself after the breeding process and be tamed towards the user.
3) light source
As already mentioned above, one of the essential characteristics of Glow Berries is the fact that they emit light. Because of this, they can be used to light up dark areas and serve other similar purposes. Also, you can use them to decorate your house. Compared to other light sources, they look quite distinct, adding to their unique appeal.
