Thorny Plant is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.
Thorny Plants are plants used in farming to grow Thorn Fruit. They drop from Thorny Plants when harvested.
Thorny Plants do not need to be replanted, after planting once the plant will continue to grow Thorn Fruit. Harvesting one of these plants yields 1 (40% chance), 2 (40% chance) or 3 (20% chance) of their fruit and sets it back one stage.
Thorny Plants are only found in the wild. Unlike other crops Thorny Plants do not drop seeds when broken or harvested; seeds can only be obtained through Commands or an inventory editor.
