Heart beets get their name from their deep, red color and heart-like shape. Heart beets are also unusually juicy for a beet, making it the only veggie that's not for the squeamish in the kitchen.
- Heart Beets can be encountered very early on. A Heart Beet patch is located just outside of The Ranch gates over a ledge, on top of a small rocky plateau which requires the Jetpack to get to.
- The consistency of the Heart Beets' growth and harvest yield makes Rock Slimes a decent choice for converting harder-to-feed or more valuable Slimes into Largos.
- Heart Beet crops in The Indigo Quarry may have Odd Onions in them.
- Its name and shape, being based on a beetroot, is a pun on the term "heartbeat".
- Despite being the Rock Slime's current favorite food, in the past, the Prickle Pear was planned as their favorite food. The reason the change was made is unknown.
- The Prickle Pear is now the dervish's favorite food.
