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



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 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.

Carrots must be directly planted on the top of a farmland block; unlike most blocks, targeting the side of a block which would result in it being placed in top of farmland will not allow it to be placed.[1]

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 eaten will not drop any carrots.


Zombies have a 0.8% chance to drop a carrot when killed by the player.

Natural generation[edit]

Village farm plots have a 20% chance of being carrots.

Carrots can be found in 50.7% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 4–8. In 1.14[upcoming] they 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 81.7% of village two-room house chests in stacks of 4–8, and in 50.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.


To eat a carrot, press and hold use while the carrot is selected in the hotbar. Eating a carrot restores 3 (Half Hunger.svgHunger.svg) 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.


Villager farmers will buy 15-19 carrots for an emerald as one of their initial tier trades.
