Dirt is a block that does not appear in the Block Wheel, however, it occurs naturally one block below the top block of a world and it can be copied. It can also be placed by the Console Command "Fill Dirt X Y Z" which requires a USB keyboard or a Xbox 360 chat pad. When this block is placed in a group of other dirt blocks, it will produce dirt vegetation.

This block was released on April 8, 2011, with the release of the game.
