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



See also: Crop farming

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.

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.


Rarely, zombies may drop a carrot when killed by the player.

Natural generationEdit

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 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.
