The fresh potato, once it was one of the world's largest food crops in a time dating back to the stone ages. Now in the fallout universe, potatoes are as rare as hope. The potato is a consumable item found in Fallout 3.
It restores 10 (12 if you have the food sanitizer) of your Hit Points without irradiating you. It is one of the few edible food items that doesn't give you any radiation, besides other fresh fruits or vegetables.
- One can be found in Pinkerton's lab, in the broken bow of Rivet City.
- Ten are in the Rivet City science lab, though taking them is considered stealing except one.
- The scientists at Rivet City have a large stock of fresh fruit and vegetables, and will say, "Be careful, that stuff is worth more than you" or "Don't touch the vegetables, they're fragile."
- In the Rivet City science lab, one of the potatoes has no owner and can thus be taken without negative Karma. It is on the table with the Bobblehead - Intelligence and is the closest of three potatoes to the test tube racks.
