Carrots are a food item that can be planted and consumed. When consumed it restores 4 hunger points and 4.8 saturation points. Carrots can be used to breed pigs. Carrots are a rare drop from Zombies and are found as crops in villages.
Carrots can be planted and harvested on farmland. When farmed they will take 8 stages to grow, however, every two stages has the same texture, so only 4 stages are seen. Mature carrot crops will drop 1-4 carrots. Bone meal can be used on carrots and fortune-enchanted tools can be used to increase the number of carrots dropped.
Carrots can be crafted into Carrot on a Stick and a Golden Carrot which can be used to make the Potion of Night Vision.
