A golden carrot is a valuable food item and brewing ingredient.
Master-level farmer villagers have a 50% chance to sell 3 golden carrots for 3 emeralds in Bedrock Edition, and always offer the same trade in Java Edition.
To eat a golden carrot, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 6 () and 14.4 saturation points, the highest saturation restoration value of any food currently in the game.
Golden carrots are used to tame, breed, grow, and heal horses, donkeys, and mules, and to breed, lead and grow rabbits.
