|“||Dirt has a ruder, less friendly cousin called "coarse dirt" that won't grow grass under any circumstances. You can make it by combining dirt with gravel in a 2x2 crafting grid, or hunt some down in the Mega Taiga, Mesa Plateau or Savanna Plateau biomes.||„|

Coarse dirt will drop as an item when mined with anything, but using a shovel is quickest.

Coarse dirt can be tilled to become dirt. This can be useful in multiplying dirt, assuming you have a steady source of gravel.
In Bedrock 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.
