A carrot is a food item that can be eaten by the player.



Zombies, husks, and zombie villagers have a 2.5% chance of dropping either an iron ingot, carrot, or potato when killed by a player or tamed wolf. This is increased by 1% per level of looting. This gives carrots the following chances of dropping:

  • 1120 (about 0.83%)
  • 11600 (about 1.83%) with Looting I
  • 17600 (about 2.83%) with Looting II
  • 23600 (about 3.83%) with Looting III

Chest loot[edit]

Carrots can be found in 44.9% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 4–8, and in 57.5% of pillager outpost chests in stacks of 3–5.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 50.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.


A carrot can be used on farmland to plant a carrots crop. Planted carrots take 8 stages to grow, and go through 4 visually distinct stages. Mature carrot crops drop 1 to 5 carrots (about 2 57 per crop harvested on average). 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 carrot crops, decreasing its growth stage by 1. The crops when harvested will not drop any carrots.


To eat a carrot, press and hold use while the carrot is selected in the hotbar. Eating a carrot restores 3 () hunger and 3.6 hunger saturation.


Carrots can also be used to breed and attract pigs and rabbits.

Villagers can pick up carrot items to become willing, which will allow them to breed. Villagers require 12 carrots to become willing.


Novice-level Farmer villagers have a 25%‌[Bedrock Edition only] or 40%‌[Java Edition only] chance to buy 22 carrots for an emerald.
