Beetroots are crops exclusive to Pocket Edition.[1] They are similar to carrots and Potatoes. They function like wheat: they drop both a food item, and seeds which can be then replanted on farmland. Beetroots will never be in the PC edition of Minecraft.[2]

[edit] Usage

Beetroots themselves are edible, but they can be crafted with a bowl to form beetroot soup and can be crafted into rose red dye. You can still smelt red mushrooms into dyes. One can also breed pigs with beetroots by tapping and holding a pig with a beetroot in one's hand, which also means that pigs will follow the player if the player is holding a beetroot.

[edit] Farming

Beetroot is grown from beetroot seeds, which are found by tilling grass blocks. It grows similarly to carrots or potatoes.

[edit] History

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.

[edit] Trivia

  • 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]
