For an overview of fresh potatoes in the Fallout series of games, see Vegetable.


Fresh potato, one of the world's largest food crops before the Great War, is a vegetable found in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

It restores Hit Points without irradiating the player character. It is one of the few edible food items that doesn't transmit any radiation, along with other fresh fruits or vegetables.

Additionally, in Hardcore mode, it reduces Starvation and Dehydration. It can also be used to make Cook-Cook's Fiend stew.
