Potatoes are food items that can be planted, consumed raw, or cooked in a furnace to make baked potatoes.

Obtaining[edit]

Zombies[edit]

Zombies have a rare chance of dropping a potato when killed by the player.

Natural generation[edit]

Potatoes can be found as crops in Villages.

Farming[edit]

When farmed, potatoes will take 8 stages to grow. However, there are only 4 distinct textures, so only 4 visible stages: every two stages have the same texture, except that growth stage 7 keeps the same appearance as stages 5-6, so that only stage 8 has the final, 'mature' appearance.

Fully grown potato crops drop 1 to 4 potatoes and have a 2% chance of dropping an additional poisonous potato. Potato yield can be increased using a tool enchanted with fortune. Bone meal can be used to mature the potato to its last stage of growth.

Usage[edit]

To eat a potato, press and hold use while a potato is selected in the hotbar. Eating a potato restores 1 (Half Hunger.svg) hunger and 0.6 hunger saturation.
