Well, if someone gave me a choice, would I want a pumpkin or a melon. Melons are hard to find, you can only find melon seeds in treasure chests in strongholds, mineshaft, woodland mansions, villages and jungles, but you can find pumpkin seeds in those as well and in the wild in many different biomes. On the other hand pumpkins are a lot more useful, you can make jack ‘o lanterns and pumpkin pie. And you can eat melons and make glistering melon. I think I would go for melons because they are harder to find and a better food source. What do you think?
