Usage[]

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

Food[]

To eat a poisonous potato, press and hold use while it is selected in the hotbar. Eating one restores 2 (🍗) hunger and 1.2 hunger saturation and has a 60% chance of applying 5 seconds of Poison II, draining 4♥♥ points of health. Interestingly, a poisonous potato actually restores double the hunger and saturation than a normal, unpoisoned potato. (A normal potato gives 1 (🍗) hunger and 0.6 saturation points).
