Beetroots are crops added to Pocket Edition 0.8 Alpha.[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.

Contents

[edit] Appearance

When held in-hand, beetroots look similar to spider eyes, but bigger, more irregular-shaped and pink. They can be obtained in the same way that you obtain wheat seeds, and are farmed in the same way as well. They do not have to be placed near a water source like sugar cane.

[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

You can obtain beetroot seeds in the same way that you first obtain wheat seeds. In 0.8.0, the beetroot will grow on normal farmland (normal as in it does not have to be by a water source like sugar cane).

[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 0.8.0 alpha 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 hoed. In a future update there will be an easier way to obtain beetroot seeds (and beetroots).[2]
