Cocoa pods are essentially the block form of cocoa beans.
Cocoa pods, or cocoa bean pods, are the planted form of cocoa beans. They spawn naturally on jungle trees, which only spawn in jungle biomes. They can be placed on jungle logs, which means that a quick farm can be created, provided there is some jungle wood. To farm cocoa beans, one needs to first place a cocoa bean on a jungle log. Cocoa pods grow quickly (in less than a day), and have three growth stages (small size, greenish color; medium size, yellowish color; and large size, brown color).
