The poisonous potato is a rare drop when harvesting (destroying) potato crops: a fully grown plant has a 2% chance of dropping one in addition to the 1–4 regular potatoes. This feature is a reference to real world potatoes, which are poisonous when they are green.
Poisonous potatoes can be found in 44.9% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 2–6.
A poisonous potato can be eaten; this restores 2 () and 1.2 saturation points and has a 60% chance of applying 5 seconds of the Poison effect, draining 4 points of health. Interestingly, a poisonous potato actually restores more hunger than a normal, unpoisoned potato.
