A carrot is a renewable resource food item that can be planted, consumed or used in crafting. When consumed, it restores health and hunger to a Blockhead. They are vegetables, since they can be planted.
Harvesting of carrots may be done by hand or by machete or spade for maximum yield on a mature plant. This results in as many as five carrots. A mature carrot plant will eventually reduce to a young one, dropping a carrot in the process. Agriculturally, the vegetable can be placed in a block of dirt or compost to grow a carrot plant for producing additional carrots.
