The Heart Beet is a unique Crop which restores the player's Health when harvested.

General Description[]

Heart Beets do not exist as physical crops, and cannot be sold or traded for items. Instead, they are used to represent the player's HeartBeetFull.png health in the UI with, and HeartBeetEmpty.png deplete when damage is taken. Empty slots are replenished by harvesting fully-grown Heart Beet crops. Normal Heart Beet crops restore the player's health by 1HeartBeetFull.png, while Heart Beet Megacrops restore 5HeartBeetFull.png.

The total number of slots cannot be increased by harvesting Heart Beets alone. However, fully fertilizing a Heart Beat crop will grant a HeartSprout.png Heart Sprout on harvest (2 for a fully-fertilized Megacrop). Collecting four Heart Sprouts will add one extra Heart Beet to the player's total health.
