Vegetarian spider eye
The poisonous potato seems like a vegetarian alternative to a spider eye. It doesn't seem to be able to be brewed, either, unlike a spider eye; so I guess this veggie version if not brewed, is at least alchemically more-poor? Ah, ok it is slightly less-restoring of hunger saturation, I wonder if it is a sort of "food booby trap" for the unwary (like in R L, as it says in Trivia).

Phytophthora or Sun Blight
Is this a reference to the Irish Potato blight or is it sun scald. Seems they were leaning toward Sun scald in the trivia. ~Rusty Shackleford~ 22:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)Mada1998
so minecraft has a poisous potato.
seems like this could be a good teaching tool for farming or shopping in general why doesnt it explain that some mushrooms are also very bad to consume? very cool tho minecraft... cant wait to see more beer and wine mods tho... awesome,do we smell a flovorology minecraft soon?? would be so awesome to have fruit to flovor my favorite minecraft consumeables alot of people dont know tomatoes on the vine have more flavor... but will rot faster than off vine tomatoes. so if you grow your own or get from a grocer. keep them on the vine till you are ready to use you get the benefit of a non dri tomato that can be canned or consumed with full flavor.. same with most herbs and of course dont forget strawberries.. fresh is always the way to go with food.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:37, 14 June 2013 (UTC).

5 users oppose, 1 is neutral (which is me). Arguments by JMTyler and Blobs2, regardless of their actual value (I tend to try to be as objective as I can), cast an overwhelming oppose wave by how easy are they to agree with. As the result, proposal is rejected by Goandgoo. — Agent NickTheRed37 (talk) 15:28, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Should they add this to brweing?
I think it would be a good idea to have this be an ingredient for some sort of debuff potion. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) at 19:14, 7 July 2013 (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~
On a multiplayer server, if you get both an anvil and a potato farm, you could just endlessly farm your potatoes until enough poisonous potatoes are achieved. (Around 15), and then go to your anvil and rename the whole stack Potato. Then, you could find someone who is starving, and then give said stack to them and run away. Good way to get rid of these almost-useless things if you want to be a jerk. However, odds are they won't eat it, realizing its' green spots, but if they're so focused on not losing their stuff by dying, they might just eat it. - –Preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) at 23:59, 4 May 2014 (UTC).

"Poor growing conditions"
This page claims that the drop rate of poisonous potatoes will increase if under "poor growing conditions." There is no data to back that up and it doesn't describe what it actually means by that. Does anybody know if this is true, and do you know what "poor growing conditions" entail? JMTyler (talk) 21:34, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
