Beetroot seeds are used to grow beetroot plants. They drop about 1-3 beetroots. Beetroots are used to make red Dye, just like Red Mushrooms and Poppies . They can be eaten, although this only restores half a Hunger Point. They can also be made into Beetroot Soup. This restores 3 hunger points. This makes them pretty similar in usage to Mushrooms. Using beetroot on a Composter has a chance to raise its level by 1. Farmer Villagers have a chance to buy beetroot in exchange for Emeralds.
- Beetroots were previously exclusive to the Pocket Edition until Mojang decided to implement it into the Java edition.
