Sweet potatoes are re-growth vegetables.

If you have Hunger Overhaul installed as as well, they grow best in Forest and Plains biomes.


After obtaining sweet potato seeds, the player can then plant them on farmland. There are three growth stages. Once the sweet potato plant has grown, the player can right-click on the plant to harvest it. The plant will then go back one stage of growth, allowing another sweet potato to grow and be harvested at a later time.

Sweet potato seeds can be gained by putting a sweet potato into a crafting grid.


Sweet potatoes are also used in many recipes to create food items.
