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

Obtaining[]

Breaking[]

The looting is calculated by a binomial distribution: 2 drops are fixed, then a drop is attempted three times with a success rate of around 57% to yield the extra 0–3 drops. Each level of the Fortune enchantment increases the number of attempts by one.

Natural generation[]

Village farm plots have a 20% (15) chance of having carrots.

Mob loot[]

Zombies, husks, and zombie villagers have a 2.5% (140) chance of dropping either an iron ingot, carrot, or potato when killed by a player or tamed wolf. This is increased by 1% (1100) 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

Usage[]

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.

Farming[]

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 2 to 5 carrots (over 3 per crop harvested on average). Bone meal can be used on carrot crops. Using a tool enchanted with Fortune increases the maximum number of carrots dropped by 1 per level.

Villager farmers break fully grown carrots, and may pick up the carrots also.

Rabbits find and eat carrot crops, decreasing its growth stage by 1. The crops do not drop any carrots when eaten.

Breeding[]

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

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

Trading[]

Novice-level Farmer villagers have a 25% (14)‌[Bedrock Edition only] or 40% (25)‌[Java Edition only] chance to buy 22 carrots for an emerald.

Carrots "item"[]

The following content is transcluded from Technical blocks/Carrots.
Java Edition
1.4.212w34aCarrots have an extra, unobtainable item form corresponding to its block ID. It can be obtained via the /give command or inventory editors with numeric item ID 141.
Unlike the proper carrot item, it had a placement sound, and was capable of directly replacing replaceable blocks such as grass provided it would result in a valid placement.
1.814w25aThe direct item form of carrots has been removed from the game. It can no longer exist as an item in any way, only as a placed block.
Pocket Edition Alpha
?Carrots exist as an item.
