Farming[edit | edit source]

Carrots can be farmed and harvested on farmland. Planted carrots take 8 stages to grow, and go through 4 visually distinct stages. Mature carrot crops drop 1 to 4 carrots (about 2.6 per crop harvested on average, or 2 5⁄7 in the 1.9 snapshots[upcoming]). Bone meal can be used on carrots. Using a tool enchanted with fortune increases the maximum number of carrots dropped by 1 per level.
Villager farmers will break fully grown carrots, and may pick up the carrots as well.
Rabbits will find and eat mature carrot crops. The crops when eaten will not drop any carrots.
Zombies[edit | edit source]
Rarely, zombies may drop a carrot when killed by the player.
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
Village farm plots have a 20% chance of being carrots.
Usage[edit | edit source]
