A highly nutritious tuber. Potatoes grow well even in somewhat poor soil, and form a delicious crispy outer coating when fried in oil.

The Potato Plant is a domesticated plant which yields 11 potatoes at 100% growth. Requires 5.8 days (or 10.71 days when accounting for nightly resting period) with full light in optimal temperature range to reach maturity. Its high tolerance to ground fertility makes it efficient for growing in soil with poor fertility like gravel.

On ordinary terrain, potato plants provide marginally less daily yield than rice plants or corn plants. Their main advantage is their low fertility sensitivity, making potatoes better in rough terrain, but much worse in rich soil or hydroponics.
Other than that, potato plants grow at a median pace, faster than corn but slower than rice. They may be useful as a slower, less labor intensive growing plant in areas where corn is too slow to grow before winter comes.
At some point there was an "Accele-potato plant". Its relationship to the current potato plant is unclear at this time, but it may be be the same plant just renamed, or some other predecessor.
