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

Obtaining[edit]

Zombies[edit]

Zombies, husks, and zombie villagers have a 2.5% chance of dropping either an iron ingot, carrot, or potato when killed by a player or tamed wolf. This is increased by 1% per level of looting. This gives potatoes the following chances of dropping:

  • 1120 (about 0.83%)
  • 11600 (about 1.83%) with Looting I
  • 17600 (about 2.83%) with Looting II
  • 23600 (about 3.83%) with Looting III

Natural generation[edit]

Village farm plots have a 20% chance of being potatoes.

Potatoes can be found in 44.9% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 2–6; in 66.3% of snowy village house chests, 74.2% of plains village house chests, and 65.6% of taiga village house chests, all in stacks of 1–7; and in 57.5% of pillager outpost chests in stacks of 2–5.

In Bedrock Edition, they can be found in 50.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2, and in 69.3% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–7.

Farming[edit]

When farmed, potatoes require 8 stages to grow. However, there are four visible stages due to having only four distinct textures: 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 5 potatoes (about 3 per crop harvested on average) 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.
