Origin Island, or formerly the Origin Valley. A bright blue sky overlooks vibrant green grass and trees. Most passive mobs roam in Origin Island. This biome is reminiscent of the old Minecraft before actual biomes were added. Small hilly mountains are common. The original rose flowers that were removed in minecraft's 1.7 update can be found in this biome. Origin Tree leaves drop Persimmons and Origin Saplings. As of 1.8 it is now an island subiome of the ocean. After the 1.8 update persimmon trees were completely removed. Surprisingly, the leaves are a block from the mod. The wood is default. Finally, the grass is also from the mod, allowing the biome to have the bright green grass. There is also a biome called Origin Beach, which generates when Origin Island meets the ocean.
