Beetroots are crops exclusive to Pocket Edition.[1] Beetroots are not planned to be in the PC edition of Minecraft.[2]

Obtaining[edit]

Beetroots are obtained from harvesting a fully grown beetroot seed, which drops both itself and beetroots

Usage[edit]

As a food[edit]

Beetroots can be eaten to restore 1 (Half Heart.svg) health.

Breeding mobs[edit]

Beetroots can be used to breed pigs by tapping and holding a pig with a beetroot in one's hand. Pigs follow the player if the player is holding a beetroot.

History[edit]

Pocket Edition Alpha
November 13, 2013 Jeb announces on Instagram that Johan Bernhardsson is working on a surprise feature for 0.8.0 alongside a picture of the player holding beetroot.
November 14, 2013 Johan posts another image of beetroot, confirming that the image previously posted by Jeb was indeed beetroot.
0.8.0 build 2 Added Beetroots.

Trivia[edit]

  • It is difficult to obtain beetroots due to beetroot seeds having a 1/15 chance of popping from grass when tilled. In a future update there will be an easier way to obtain beetroot seeds (and beetroots).[3]
