Cocoa beans are a food ingredient.
Cocoa beans come from cocoa pods, which are found naturally in jungle biomes. Placing a cocoa bean on the side of jungle wood will plant a new cocoa pod. (The log does not need to be attached to a tree).
Cocoa has three stages of growth. During its first, the pod is small and green. In the second stage, the plant is bigger and colored tan. In its last stage, the pod is even bigger, and orange-brown. When destroyed in the first two stages, the pod will yield only one cocoa bean. When destroyed in the third stage, it will give two or three cocoa beans. Bone meal can be used to force the cocoa pod forward 1 stage of growth. Cocoa pods will "pop" and drop their beans when struck by flowing water,[Java Edition only] pushed by a piston, or if their log is removed by any means.
Cocoa bean can be caught when fishing in jungle as junk item.
