Poisonous Potato is a free add-on players can get from the Minecraft Marketplace as part of the new update. The add-on only works in vanilla Minecraft: Bedrock Edition by default and needs a Snapshot update before it can be playable in the Java version.

You can set up your own Poisonous Potato farm, use it as a vehicle wheel, or even place it on a pedestal to worship it. The update brings 5 new biomes, Potato Peeler Gear and Lashing Potato Gear, new cosmetics, poisonous potato mobs, and more.
