What kind of treats and human food can bunnies eat?

When I get my bunny I want to make it as comfortable as possible! Can they even eat human food? I have never given my bunny human food. I have other Questions as well... What is the calmest breed of bunny to get and how to tell them apart? Should I get a male or female...Which gender is the calmest?

Update:

Sorry, I accidentally put this in the horses section!! But if you could answer it, That would be FANTASTIC!!

    You'll do best to stick with rabbit pellets and limit the treats. As another said, lettuce and grass/dandelions are loved by rabbits but it only takes a small amount to give them diarrhea. Use very sparingly.

    Rabbits differ in their personalities even within a breed. When picking out your new pet, handle it to find out if it enjoys being petted and handled or if it fights the contact. Rabbits are prey animals and a lot of them are pretty cautious about being picked up and handled. In time, they can come around but some may not ever be the "cuddly" pet you are wanting.

    I have Holland Lop bunnies...they are on the small side..and very loving. Female or male? Makes no difference, just handle them as much as possible and you will have a sweet bunny. Here is a website that list things to feed as treats. My guys love alfalfa cubes, and you can buy them in a 50lb bag for like 15.00 at your local feed store. View the list of foods and if it's not on the list,

    then I wouldn't reccomend feeding it!

    Good corn free bunny food is good with a piece of carrot, cabbage leafs, Collard leafs, Broccoli every few days, but do not feed your bunny ANY lettuce, or high water content veggies.

    They can also eat fruits like apple and papaya.
