Sizes Of Cocoa :
Cocoa pods are found in 3 sizes in the Minecraft game. The small-sized cocoa pods look a bit greenish and they give away one single cocoa bean when you break them.
Also, the medium-sized cocoa pods are a bit brownish in color and they are relatively larger than the smaller-sized ones. If you break the medium-sized cocoa pods, you will receive a single cocoa bean out of them.
Finally, the largest cocoa beans look a bit dark chocolatey in color. In addition, they give away 2 to 3 cocoa beans when they are broken.
