Usage[edit | edit source]

Coarse dirt has the ability to grow saplings, sugar canes, and mushrooms, which can be planted directly under appropriate conditions.

Neither mycelium nor grass will spread onto coarse dirt.

Coarse dirt can be tilled to become dirt.

Grassless dirt[edit | edit source]

In Pocket Edition, the corresponding block, known as "grassless dirt", is simply dirt with a data value of 1. It has most of the same properties as coarse dirt, except that it has the texture of regular dirt, it drops a regular dirt block when broken even with Silk Touch, it cannot be crafted, and when tilled it turns to farmland rather than regular dirt.
