A poisonous potato is a type of potato that can poison the player.


The poisonous potato is a rare drop when harvesting (destroying) potato plants: a fully grown plant has a 2% chance of dropping one in addition to the 1–4 regular potatoes. This is a reference to real world potatoes, which are poisonous when they are green. It also rarely drops from zombies when they’re killed.

Natural generation[edit]

Poisonous potatoes can be found in 50.7% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 2–6. In 1.14[upcoming] they can be found in 44.9% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 2–6.


Poisonous potatoes cannot be planted on farmland or baked. They also have no use with the composter.


A poisonous potato can be eaten, this restores 2 (Hunger.svg) and 1.2 saturation points, and has a 60% chance of applying 5 seconds of the Poison effect (draining 4 (Poisoned Heart.svgPoisoned Heart.svg)).
