Beetroot seeds can be found in 18.5% of dungeon chests, 31.6% of chest minecarts in Mineshafts, and 18.5% of woodland mansion chests, all in stacks of 2–4; in 21.2% of End city chests in stacks of 1–10; and in 66.3% of snowy village house chests in stacks of 1–5.
Harvesting fully-grown beetroot yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (2 seeds per crop harvested on average). The Fortune enchantment can be used to improve the drop rate.
Beetroot seeds can be placed on farmland. After being placed, the seeds undergo four states of growth. The fully-grown beetroot plants can be broken to produce beetroot seeds and beetroots.
While beetroot crops have four growth stages compared to eight for wheat, carrots, and potatoes, each growth tick has a 1⁄3 chance of not advancing the growth stage. Therefore, beetroot grows only slightly faster than other crops.
One application of bonemeal has a 75% chance of advancing growth by one stage. This is less effective than for other crops: an average of 5 1⁄3 are needed to fully grow beetroot compared to 2 2⁄7 for other crops.
Like other seeds, beetroot seeds can be used to tame parrots.
Placing beetroot seeds into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
