“These bushes are found in clusters among the floating islands of the Aether realm.”
Book of Lore

Berry Bush is a type of block found in the Aether.


It does not require any tool to mine, but will not drop itself unless mined with a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe. If in a harvest ready state, it will drop Blue Berries when mined, and if mined again or if a block supporting it is removed, will instead drop a Berry Bush Stem.

Natural generation[]

Berry Bushes can be found naturally generated on islands, sometimes in groups of two or three.

Bone Meal[]

If Bone Meal is used on an Aether Grass block, vegetation has a chance to spawn instead of tall grass up to seven blocks away. Berry Bushes and Purple Flowers are 20% chance, White Roses are 70% chance, Berry Bush Stems are 40% chance, and Orange Trees are 10% chance.


They have two stages of growth, one as a stem (what it looks like after harvested) and one fully bloomed which resembles green Skyroot Leaves with blue fruits. Berry Bush Stems can be replanted by the player. When harvested on Enchanted Aether Grass, they instead drop 2-4 Blue Berries.

In 1.10[upcoming], Berry Bushes are now instantly harvestable.


  • Berry Bushes are useful as an easy source of food or as for decorating exterior gardens.


  • Berry Bushes were introduced in the version 1.04 update for the original The Aether mod.
  • Despite having separate opaque textures, Berry Bushes are not affected by the Fast graphic setting.
