Minecraft Cherry Blossom Biome to Paint the Overworld in Pink in 1.20

Minecraft has announced exciting developments for the 1.20 update. A brand-new cherry blossom biome is on its way, with new wood-sets included.

The Minecraft 1.20 announcement is here to say spring is in the air. Mojang has announced that a cherry blossom biome is coming in the new update. In the spirit of Valentine’s day, Minecraft has shown fans some love with this brand-new pink Cherry Blossom biome to explore. 

The developer shared that the feature will be available within Java snapshots, Bedrock betas, and previews. A specific release date for 1.20 has yet to be confirmed but is set for 2023. 

This charming pink biome will be a sanctuary for you to escape to. Mojang stated that only three neutral mobs will spawn in the biome:

  • Pigs
  • Sheep
  • Bees

Throughout the biome, you'll discover cherry tree saplings that you can plant freely. You'll be able to break down cherry trees into full pink colored wood-sets, and craft a brand new style of hanging sign coming in the update.

While the 1.20 update will include other exciting features like archaeology and an ancient sniffer mob that is back from extinction, the Cherry Blossom Biome is plenty to look forward to, and we can’t wait to wander across the pink flower-dappled blocks!
