Minecraft (Pocket Edition)
Beetroot Seeds are obtained solely by using a Hoe on a grass block. As an experiment we tilled 500 Grass Blocks and only harvested 6 units of Beetroot Seed (and 58 units of Wheat seed), which illustrates its relative scarcity.
Usage / Purpose
Beetroot Seeds are planted to produce a combination of Beetroots and often more Beetroot seeds when harvested. The continual planting of the new seeds quickly leads to a surplus of Beetroots.
Beetroot Seeds are stackable in groups of up to 64 units in the inventory or chest.
Like all crops, it is useful to put Bone Meal on the planted seeds to ensure their growth.
