Minecraft Potato

The Humble Potato


The Humble Potato


Such a simple crop yet one with a great deal of utility both in the real world and in Minecraft. It is one of many crops that you can consume or elevate to another level should you desire to do so. Here we shall dive in on how to do so.


Where To Find Them


Finding a potato crop is going to be a bit difficult to accomplish when in the wild. The one consistent area where you will have a high chance of finding potatoes are in farms within villages.


Finding a Potato Crop


If there are no potato farms within the village that you are in, you could look within the chests that belong to villagers to see if there are any potatoes being held there. Within all farms of a village, there is twenty percent chance of one of the farms growing potatoes.

If you are having a poor time in attempting to locate a village or even a village with a farm there are other unorthodox methods of attaining what you are searching for. There is a small chance that zombies, husks, and zombie villagers will drop a potato upon being slain, but the chance is often less than one percent. If you would like to increase that chance it is best that you have the loot enchantment on you while on your search.


You would actually have a much better chance at finding a potato at a pillager outpost if you are desperate enough

Farming


Fully grown potato crops have a bountiful yield of one to five potatoes per crop depending how fortunate you are. Be warned however that there is a small chance that you may grow a poisonous potato within your crop so be wary.


Farming


Much like other crops, bone meal can be used to make your potatoes grow faster, so do not be shy about using it if you desire a faster yield. When eating a raw potato, you can restore on bar of hunger. Smart players will pop a potato into an oven to turn it into a baked potato which will restore five bars of hunger.

If you desire to take it a step further and combine your baked potato with certain ingredients you could even make rabbit stew:


  1. 1 Baked potato
  2. 1 Cooked rabbit
  3. 1 Bowl
  4. 1 Carrot
  5. 1 Mushroom

Utility


Besides being used for filling your own hunger, there is another use for potatoes that not many people consider right away: breeding. If you own some pigs and would like for them to breed more of their kind, this food that you can feed them is the way to go about accomplishing this.

If a villager were to acquire six potatoes however, they could become willing and breed as a result.


Conclusion


Potatoes are a great asset to have in survival mode within minecraft that should be taken advantage of at your earliest convenience. They may not be that essay to gain in the early parts of your gameplay, but it will become much more manageable if you are able to strike gold so to speak.
