We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Beetroots are a food and dye ingredient.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

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 found in 55.3% of village two-room house chests in stacks of 5–8.[Bedrock Edition only]

Usage[edit | edit source]

Food[edit | edit source]

Beetroots can be eaten to restore 1 (Half Hunger.svg) hunger and 1.2 hunger saturation.

Breeding[edit | edit source]

Beetroots can be used to breed pigs. Pigs also follow a player who is holding beetroot.

Villagers can pick up beetroot items to become willing, which will allow them to breed. Villagers require 12 beetroots to become willing. A current bug prevents villagers from becoming willing with Beetroots.
