Alex Wiltshire Mojang avatar.png Cocoa! You’ll know this humble jungle bean as the source of delicious cookies and lots of brown things - brown concrete, brown glass, brown fireworks and even brown shulker boxes. But you might not know its long and grand history, which involves ancient civilisations, human sacrifice, conquering Spaniards, and delicious confections.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Cocoa pods can be found on the trunks of normal-sized naturally-generated jungle trees. They will not generate on user-grown trees.

Farming[edit | edit source]

The player is able to plant cocoa beans on the logs of jungle trees. The cocoa pod has three stages of growth. During its first, the pod is small and green. In the second stage, the pod is bigger and colored tan. In its last stage, the pod is even bigger and orange. When destroyed in the first two stages, the pod will only yield one cocoa bean. When destroyed in the third stage, it will give 2–3 cocoa beans. Bone meal can be used to advance it one stage. When cocoa beans grown on jungle tree logs are moved by a piston, they will become harvested. They will also become harvested when touched by water.

Data values[edit | edit source]

Cocoa has the ID name minecraft:cocoa, and a data value of 127. It uses its block data field to store the stage of growth, and the direction to which the pod is attached.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cocoa plants have a different hitbox for each size, however the top is always .25 blocks below the top of the wood it's on.
  • If a cocoa pod grows while the player is standing next to it, the player will not be pushed out and can move through it.
