Aaronholt Homestead

10x Melon Blossoms


There are two types of Blossoms here, Melon Blossom and Ash Blossom. When you harvest an Ash Blossom, it shows as a Melon Blossom in your inventory and can be used in all Melon Blossom recipes and dishes.


From the fast travel point, face South and run straight. Keep running all the way to the back, towards the cranberries, the shed, and the crop field.

Stand on top of the red tractor in front of you and look East. You will see a broken shed and some crop rows in the distance. Head to the crop rows as marked in the picture below.

The vines can be hard to see so I recommend walking up and down the rows and keeping count as you go along.

Walk over to the trailer and stand in front of the metal drum that is at the back of the trailer. Turn to face the train carriage and look down on the ground. The next Melon Blossom vine should be right in front of you. Yes, this vine is bugged and is glitched underground.

Face South East and you will see a small patch of trees in front of you.

Walk through the trees and stop on the other side.

Turn SSE and you will see another patch of trees. Head towards those trees and stop on the other side inside the cranberry bush.

Line yourself up between the NAR Repair Yard and Lost Home map markers and walk forward slowly while looking at the ground. You will see the Melon Blossom a few steps after the fallen tree.


Skyline Valley

Camp Liberty

Clear the camp of enemies and then run back and stand in front of the Todem Pole in the middle of the camp.

Face South and walk up the hill towards the Camping Zone and the green tents.

Keep walking South until you get to the campfire.

Face East and walk forward, walking around buildings, etc until you get to the green toilets/porta potties on your right.

Stand inside the porta potty that is lying on its side and face East.

Jump out of the porta potty and walk East. Try and stay as straight East as you can as this location has no landmarks nearby.

Walk East for a while until you see a broken shed and a windmill on your right.

The 4 Melon Blossom vines will be in front of the shed, next to the scarecrow.


Vault 94

14x Melon Blossoms


Note: One of the Melon Blossoms is unobtainable due to being out of bounds. So technically you can only harvest 13 vines here.


There are two types of Blossoms in this location, Melon Blossom and Ash Blossom. When you harvest an Ash Blossom, it shows as a Melon Blossom in your inventory and can be used in all Melon Blossom recipes and dishes.



Open the vault door using the yellow controls in the cave and enter the vault.

From the load-in point, the first Melon Blossom is in front of you, next to the skeleton in the vault suit.


From that vine, turn around to face the vault door. In front of you is the cat walk ramp and to your right is an open area. Growing on the ground, near the wall, another skeleton in a vault suit and a corn plant, is another Melon Blossom.


Go through the doorway and down the stairs to the marketplace. On the left is a large hole in the wall. Go through the hole and it will take you to the greenhouse. There are 5 vines in here.


Check the signs above the doors of the greenhouse.


Face Greenhouse 5 and there is a Melon Blossom vine out the front, on the right.


There are three in the corner, between Greenhouse 5 and the stairs to the seed bank. (refer to the photo if required).


The first one is on the left-hand side of greenhouse #5.


The next one is in that corner, against the wall, near a light blue metal crate. Use the Starlight Berry bush as a point of reference.


If you jump on top of Greenhouse #5 and face South, you will see a platform in front of you. The next vine is on the corner of the terminal/consoles, closest to the chem bench.


Jump off the platform, turn around, and face South.

Take the stairs down to the seed bank.

Enter the seed bank and walk forward until you are standing in front of Seed Bank T.

Turn right and walk through the door.

Stand on top of the desk and face North.

There will be some medical curtains/dividers in front of you/on your right.

One Melon Blossom vine is growing at the base of one of the dividers and the other is growing on the bench behind the dividers.


Go back into the Seed Bank and stand at Seed Bank U. Turn North and face the door that says "Atrium". Look down and you will see another Melon Blossom vine.


From the Melon Blossom above, head towards the Atrium. Stop in the double doorway and look forward to the Atrium. You will see a blue trash can and a table. The Melon Blossom vine is at the end of the table.


From that platform, jump down, run straight across the room, and jump up onto the platform on the other side/right-hand side of the Atrium. Look for the door marked "Operations".


Stand in the "Operations" doorway and there will be two Melon Blossom vines on the ground, in front of you.


From Operations, you want to head to the GECK.


From the last blossom vines, face East and walk through the doorway. Once you enter the room, you will see a door for Security on your left and a door for the GECK on your right. Enter the door marked "GECK" and then just follow the rooms around. There are no other doors or ways that you can go. You are looking for a regular-sized blue vault door that says "Vault 94 GECK Wing" when you hover over it.


Once you are past the load screen, you should be in a small room with some workbenches. Go through the doorway near the weapons workbench and out into the GECK wing. You will need to watch your rads here.


From the doorway, turn left and then right into the first doorway on your right. Run straight until you get to the Vault 94 stash box and then turn right. Walk straight again until you get to the doorway. Turn South and you will see another doorway opposite you. Enter that room and the vine is on the ground on the right-hand side of the door.

Hi, I'm Kat or Duchess

I'm an Australian data miner who writes farming, event, and food buff guides for Fallout 76.

I believe that all knowledge and information should be free, which is why my guides will never be locked behind a paywall. However, running a website and photo and video editing software does not come cheaply.

So, If you found my guides helpful, please consider buying me a ko-fi (coffee) using the link below.

All monies go towards the tools for writing my guides and maybe for an actual cup of coffee or 3 ;)

Alternatively, share my guides with your fellow vault dwellers and help them to survive the wasteland.
