A Poisonous Potato is a food item that can be obtained (2% chance) by harvesting a regular Potato plant. A poisonous potato can cause rapid damage to a player if eaten (similar to a Spider Eye). However, it is not quite as dangerous, because it only has a 60% chance of poisoning a player, rather than a certain chance. When obtained, the poisonous potato cannot be baked or planted like a normal potato. These were added in the Pretty Scary Update (1.4.2).
- If a player gets poisoned by a poisonous potato, they will be inflicted with "Poison" for 5 seconds.
- Eating one of these at night or in a cave is very risky, as it will fill the hunger bar while depleting the health. Should a player come face to face with something like a Skeleton or Zombie, there will be a higher chance of death than normal.
- Poisonous potatoes can be discerned from regular potatoes by its color and being non-stackable.
