This root vegetable seems to thrive near mammals, and not dinosaurs. As such, it can be found mostly in the mountains.

The Rockarrot ( Rock-A-Root ) is one of the 4  Crops in the game. It is harvested from a plant grown from a Rockarrot Seed on a medium or large crop plot. A Rockarrot plant can only hold up to 150 Rockarrots in a crop plot at a time.

This item expires very quickly once removed from the crop plot in a similar fashion to Raw Prime Meat, but its durability can be extended by a short time using a Preserving Bin or Refrigerator. It is recommended not to pick Rockarrots from a crop plot until ready to use. Also like Raw Prime Meat Rockarrots and the other Crops are better than berries for taming herbivores. Each Vegetable usually fills 40 food points of a dino.

You can find Rockarrot plants and seeds in the warm climate mountains on The Island The Island and The Center The Center. On Ragnarok /Valguero some wild plants can be found in the Highlands Ragnarok /The Farm Valguero.and can be picked up with the Use key (E, Y, Triangle). They are a great source of early game food.

Notes / Trivia

  • The Rockarrot is actually a carrot.
  • If said slowly, the pronunciation sounds a bit like “raw carrot”.
  • Rockarrots (and their seeds) can be found on The Farm on Valguero and in The Highlands on Ragnarok.
  • Rockarrots and Savoroot are the only crops that can be found in the wild / that are naturally generated and are obtainable without farming. (Longrass is found in the Ragnarok Arena)
