A melon is a consumable in Fallout 4.


Melons can only be planted in dirt. They can be harvested for food to feed settlers. A settler must be assigned to the plant with the workshop menu in order to grow and harvest the fruit. They appear like a cross between a watermelon and a pumpkin as far as the stem.

With the addition of the new Survival mode, they have become a highly useful consumable providing both water and food with each bite. Two melons, when eaten, will bring the Sole Survivor from "parched" and "peckish" back to a normal thirst and hunger level.



  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Sometimes when planting a melon, it can be placed in the harvest state already. This can lead to an infinite loop of planting and harvesting it. [verified]
  • Icon pc.png Icon xboxone.png Sometimes when removing a melon, it disappears, but can still be seen in the workshop menu. Every attempt to move it causes the game to crash or lag. [verified]
    • It seems to disappear after some time.
