Potato can be found growing in the wild between the seasons of Spring and Late Summer, and has a chance to regenerate during those seasons every year. Harvest the plant to obtain Potato seeds as well as an average of 55 oz of Potato if the crop is mature. Potato requires a minimum temperature of 4℃ to grow, and a minimum temperature of 0℃ to stay alive if it is older than the first stage of growth. Potato is a Nutrient C crop.

Potatoes are also a rare drop from zombies. However, the carrots dropped by zombies will already be 50% decayed.


Potato is not a hardy crop, meaning that it will not survive below-freezing temperatures.


Main article: Food

Potato can be eaten directly. Consuming Potato replenishes the vegetable nutrient category.

Food Preservation

Main article: Pickling

Potatoes can sealed in a barrel of water, at a ratio of 4oz of potatoes per 1,000mB of water, to produce Vodka after 72 hours. Vodka can be drunk directly, or combined with fruit to produce vinegar. Vinegar, and brine (which is produced from vinegar), are used in brining and pickling, which can greatly reduce food decay.
