Seed: Yes, 64
Potato can be found growing in the wild in the Americas Region between the seasons of Spring and Late Summer, and has a chance to regenerate during those seasons every year. Harvest the plant to obtain Potato seeds as well as an average of 55 oz of Potato if the crop is mature. Potato requires a minimum temperature of 4℃ to grow, and a minimum temperature of 0℃ to stay alive. Potato is a Nutrient C crop.
Potatoes are also a rare drop from zombies. However, the potatoes dropped by zombies will already be 50% decayed.
Potato is not a hardy crop, meaning that it will not survive below-freezing temperatures.
