Oreberry Bushes are blocks that produce Berries when fully grown. There are six different bushes for different materials: Aluminum, Copper, Gold, Iron and Tin as well as Essence Berry Bushes for XP.
Oreberry Bushes can be found in caves or underground and can be harvested without a tool. Your local Village Tinkerer may offer to trade Oreberry Bushes. Be careful while walking near them, for they deal one heart of damage.
Oreberry Bushes act like cactus in the way that they hurt you when touched, but they don't destroy items when thrown at them. When placed, they start their growing cycle, which consists of 3 stages: small, medium and mature. The different stages are differentiated by size easily and only the mature stage produces berries on random ticks. Oreberry Bushes can only be placed on opaque blocks as well as upside-down slabs, upside-down stairs and hoppers. Once placed, the block underneath can be destroyed and the bushes will continue growing and producing berries. Essence Oreberry Bushes can be placed and grow in any light level, while Oreberry Bushes can only be placed at light level <13 and grow at light level <10.
Oreberries can be smelted into their respective nugget type. Essence Berries give Experience when consumed.
