Beetroots are a food and dye ingredient.
Beetroots are obtained from harvesting a fully grown crop block, which drops the crop and seeds (not every harvest yields seeds). These crops can be found growing in villages or can be grown from planted beetroot seeds.
Beetroots can be eaten to restore 1 () hunger and 1.2 hunger saturation.
Villagers can pick up beetroot items to become willing, which will allow them to breed. Villagers will need 12 beetroots before they are able to breed.
