|“||What's taters, precious, eh, what's taters?||”|
–Sméagol/Gollum, The Two Towers (Literature)
Potatoes are a food from Vanilla that can be found in Middle-earth. They can be grown as crops or found as loot in many structures of the Shire. They are sold (baked) and bought (raw) by Hobbit bartenders and sold by Hobbit farmers.
The player can get the achievement "Boil 'Em, Mash 'Em..." for buying potatoes from a Hobbit farmer. They are the gaffer's delight, and are good ballast for an empty stomach.
Like carrots and lettuce, potatoes are a seedless crop, meaning the raw potato itself can be planted in tilled dirt to grow into new potato plants. They can be bought from Hobbit farmers and found in most Hobbit structures.
Raw potatoes restore 1 () hunger point each. When baked in a furnace or Hobbit oven, they each restore 6 () hunger points (in vanilla 1.8 reduced to 5 ()). The rare (1 in 50) variant, the poisonous potato, restores 2 () hunger points, and has a 60% chance of applying 4 seconds of the poison effect when eaten.
