Podzol is a block that was added to Minecraft Java Edition 1.7 update and Pocket Edition 0.9.0. It has a similar look to standard grass, but the top texture appears as it is covered with dead leaves; however, it doesn't spread to adjacent blocks like its grass counterpart. If it is mined without a Silk Touch tool, it will turn into regular dirt. This unique block is one of two blocks, the other being mycelium, that allows a player to place and cultivate mushrooms at any light level. Naturally, it can be found in the bamboo jungle biome or the mega taiga biome, however it can also be obtained when growing a 2 X 2 spruce tree; the podzol will replace the surrounding blocks at the bottom of the tree.


  • Dead bushes can be placed on podzol, but not on grass or normal dirt. This is not true in the Bedrock Edition.
  • Before the 1.14 update, podzol could only be found in the mega taiga biome.
  • Unlike mycelium and grass, podzol makes the dirt sound when broken, walked on or placed.
  • Wandering traders will sell podzol in exchange for emeralds.
