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 the player if eaten (similar to a Spider Eye). However, it is not quite as dangerous, because it only has a 60% chance of poisoning the 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 the player gets poisoned by a poisonous potato, it'll give "Poison" for 5 seconds.
  • Eating one of these at night is very risky, as it'll fill the hunger bar but deplete the health. Should the 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 non-stackability.
