Potato detail.png

Raw potatoes can be picked from fields throughout Lumbridge, such as those south-west of the windmill, near Draynor Manor, or north of the cow field in Lumbridge. They heal 1 hitpoint when eaten raw. When picking potatoes from fields, players may randomly receive 1 potato seed.

Raw potatoes can be bought from Hudo at the Grand Tree, who has a stock of 10, for 1 coin each. Wydin's food store in Port Sarim also has a stock of one raw potato for 1 coin each. Kenelme's Wares in Port Piscarilius sells one raw potato for 1 coin each. Frenita's Cookery Shop in Yanille sells 5 potatoes for 1 coin each.

Members can obtain a lot of (free) potatoes in a relatively short time, without waiting for farming patches, by taking plenty of empty sacks to any potato field, and filling from there. Another method for members is to pick potatoes at the potato field north of the Lumbridge cow pen and note them at the Tool Leprechaun by the hops patch to the west.

Cooking[edit | edit source]

Raw potatoes are used in cooking. Placing one in a bowl of water is required to make stews. Raw potatoes can be cooked on a range to make baked potatoes. (Note: Cooking potatoes on a fire yields no result. Nothing happens.)

Farming[edit | edit source]

Players with level 1 Farming can grow them from potato seeds. Three potato seeds are needed per allotment. They take 40 minutes to grow, grant 8 Farming experience for planting and 9 Farming experience for each potato harvested. Up to 10 raw potatoes can be stored in a sack making a sack of potatoes, which can be used to pay a gardener to look after an onion patch.
