||For an overview of the consumable, see potato.
A fresh potato is a consumable item found in Fallout: New Vegas.
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.
