How To Get Carrots In Minecraft

1. Find Or Place Down Water

First, we need to find a small area of water or create your own.  In our example, we have simply dug a hole 5 blocks long and filled it with water

2. Use Your Hoe

Next, select a hoe in your Hotbar and prepare the ground around the water. You can use the hoe by using the following controls on your game controller:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: right-click on the block.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): tap on the block.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the LT button.
  • PS3, PS4: press the L2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZL button.
Use Your Hoe

After you have used the hoe and removed the topsoil from the ground, you'll notice the blocks have turned brown. They are now ready for planting.

3. Plant The Carrots

Select the carrots in your Hotbar and plant them onto the blocks of soil that you previously used your hoe on. Plant your carrots using the following controls on your game controller:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: right-click on the block.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): tap on the block.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the LT button.
  • PS3, PS4: press the L2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZL button.
Plant The Carrots

Once you have planted your carrots, you'll begin to see them grow. Now, let's speed up that process!

4. Fertilize The Carrots

Your carrots will slowly grow over-time. Planted carrots will go through 8 stages of growth (4 visual stages). However, we can speed that up by fertilizing the plants with bonemeal.

So, select bonemeal in your Hotbar and use the following game controls to fertilize your plants:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: right-click on the plant.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): tap on the plant.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the LT button.
  • PS3, PS4: press the L2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZL button.
Fertilize The Carrots

As you use the bonemeal, you'll notice the plants grow. Once your carrot farm is fully-grown, we can harvest the carrots.

5. Harvest The Carrots

Lastly, we will want to harvest the crop. To do this, you simply break the carrot plant using the following controls on your game controller:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: left-click on the plant.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): tap on the plant and hold.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the RT button.
  • PS3, PS4: press the R2 button.
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZR button.

After you break the plant you'll notice a carrot floating where the plant was. Be sure to pick the carrots up before they disappear.

You now have carrots! Minecraft carrots are food items that will restore 3 hunger and 3.6 saturation. They can also be used to breed pigs and rabbits.
