The Orchard is a biome added by the Biomes O' Plenty mod. It can be commonly recognised by its Flowering Oak Trees and bright colours. The grass is slightly yellower and brighter than normal grass. Portabello and White Anenomes will also spawn here along with large landmasses of wheat grass. Tree leaves are unique on their own by their bright yellowish-green color and the trees have few flowers.
- Although the Biome is automatically generated, in real life it is actually human made for commercial purposes, which is completely different to BoP type of Orchard, however apple orchards have grown naturally.
- The new design of the biome is a combination of the removed Dead Forest, the old Orchard, and possibly the Overgrown Greens.
Before Minecraft 1.8, Apple Trees dominated the biome, inwhich the leaves had chances of dropping an apple, (please see Apple Tree for more details of the tree and the leaves). Before it was a subbiome of the Plains, now it is redesigned and independent. however they were removed for making it too easy to gain apples. The only trees were small oak trees and they were much more spread out. Orchards were also subiomes of the vanilla Plains biome but where made seperate in 1.8. In 1.10 the trees were modified to be more spread out, and small shallow lakes appear across the biome sometimes too.
