Beetroot seeds are items that can be used to plant beetroot crops.
Beetroot seeds can be found in 21.2% of End city chests in stacks of 1–10, and in 18.5% of dungeon chests, 31.6% of chest minecarts in abandoned mineshafts, and 18.5% of woodland mansion chests, all in stacks of 2–4. In 1.14[upcoming] they can be found in 66.3% of village house chests in stacks of 1–5.
Village farm plots have a 10% chance of being beetroot.
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, it will undergo four states of growth. When fully grown it can be broken to produce beetroot seeds and beetroots.
While beetroot crops have only 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 and 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.
Beetroot seeds must be directly planted on the top of a farmland block; unlike most blocks, targeting the side of a block which would result in it being placed in top of farmland will not allow it to be placed.
Like other seeds, beetroot seeds can be used to tame parrots.
Placing beetroot seeds into a composter will have a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
