When destroyed, melons will drop (3-7 in 1.9 Pre-release 3, 1 in 1.9 Pre-release 4) melon slices. Melons will also be destroyed when a Piston of any kind pushes a melon block. If seeds and sticky pistons are placed in the correct formation, they can be used to auto harvest melons. One melon slice can be crafted into a melon seed.
