Raw toxipotatoes. Once harvested, toxipotatoes are very dietarily similar to potatoes. However, when eaten raw, they have a higher chance of causing food poisoning.

Toxipotatoes are a vegetable raw food obtained by harvesting toxipotato plants. Toxipotato plants are one of the only plants to grow on polluted soil, but toxipotatoes have an increased chance of food poisoning when eaten raw.
Toxipotatoes are harvested from toxipotato plants. Each plant requires 9.05 full days at optimal light and temperature range to reach maturity in normal, 100% fertile soil and yields units per plant, before modifiers for Difficulty and Plant Harvest Yield.
As a raw food, toxipotatoes can be be eaten raw, with a chance of giving food poisoning, however this chance is double that of other raw foods at 4%. They can also be cooked into a meal with a food poisoning chance dependent on the skill of the cook and the cleanliness of the kitchen, with no additional malus when compared to other raw foods. Animals are immune to food poisoning from raw food but not from meals. When used in food recipes that require specific types of nutrition, such as fine meals, toxipotatoes are classified as a vegetable.
Toxipotatoes take days to rot, tied with corn for the longest rot time of all raw food .
Toxipotato plants (0.77 base yield/day) are strictly inferior in yield to both potato plants (1.03 yield/day) and rice plants (1.08 yield/day) in regular soil. While +16.67% better in yield/work than rice, toxipotatoes take ×163.4% the time per plant to grow, so are a less reliable crop. If work is a concern, then regular potatoes (+57.14%) or corn (+214.81%) are much better options for yield.
Toxipotatoes can be grown on polluted soil, but their abysmal yield in all aspects means that it would take a heavily polluted map, where little clean soil is nearby, to make it feasible. Even then, you could clear out a field to grow more traditional plants in. Cleaning can take a while, so toxipotatoes can be used in the earlier stages of an extremely polluted colony.
The extra food poisoning chance is negligible, as raw food should always be cooked anyways.
Toxipotatoes have lower market value ( 0.75) than other raw food like rice, corn, potatoes ( 1.1) or meat ( 2). They also last for 60 days without refrigeration. This factors make toxipotatoes an attractive option when buying raw food from traders.
