Beetroots are a food and dye ingredient.
Beetroots are obtained from harvesting a fully grown crop block, which drops 1 beetroot and 1-4 seeds (about 2.5 seeds harvested on average). 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, allowing them to breed. Villagers need 12 beetroots before they can breed.
