Carrots can be farmed and harvested on farmland. Planted carrots take 8 stages to grow. Mature carrot crops drop 1 to 4 carrots. 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.
Very rarely, Zombies may drop a carrot when killed by the player.
Carrots generate naturally as crops in Villages.
