Minecraft players can collect many blocks and materials, and harvest many crops in different biomes during their journey.
Cocoa beans are one of the crops that players can grow and harvest. These beans can be used for a variety of purposes that players may find useful in their Minecraft adventures. These are three facts that you may not know about cocoa beans.
Cocoa pods contain cocoa beans that can be found by players. These pods can then be found on the sides and trunks of trees within a jungle biome. You can obtain the seeds using any tool.
The pod can be broken open with a tool or your hands, but axes are the most efficient. Once the cocoa pod is broken open, it will drop cocoa seeds which the player can then pick up and add into their inventory.
The fastest way for players to grow cocoa beans is to use jungle wood. It may be obvious that cocoa pods can be found in the wild, on naturally occurring trees. The logs and wood do not need to be from a standing tree. The wood can be arranged in any way the players like and the cocoa pods planted.
