Beetroot seeds are items that can be used to plant beetroot crops.


Natural generation[edit]

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.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 33.3% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.

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 are sold by wandering traders for one emerald.



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 13 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 13 are needed to fully grow beetroot compared to 2 27 for other crops.


Like other seeds, beetroot seeds can be used to breed chickens, lead chickens around, and make baby chickens grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.


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.
