    Putting poison in a Composter to make bone meal doesn't seem healthy for the crops. Can't support it.

    I'm pretty sure this would make sense; how does nature deal with these little devils? Composting them shouldn't be an issue at all. +1

    Although the likelihood of this happening is near impossible, since the developers intend for the poisonous potato to be a truly useless item.

    Technically they don't seeing that they don't generate without a village.

    @Blast Burner Technically, poisonous potatoes are just green potatoes, which are pretty much just unripe (?) potatoes, so I think this would make sense.

    With that logic right there Lisa, you might've changed my opinion of this idea.

    @Blast Burner Yup! I believe years ago the poisonous potato was actually called the "green potato." They may be slightly dangerous to humans, but in a compost I'm sure they're perfectly fine!

    I suggested a different use for poisonous potatoes, to have them used to make starvation potions. I also think that anything poisonous could be healthy for plants.

    Honestly, I know it's somewhat of a running gag with the developers to keep the potato useless, but it's frustrating just having them lying around the place. I was really surprised when the Village & Pillage update got released and you couldn't compost them.

    If the developers want the poisonous potatoes to be useless, I don't mind. But as it is, they are a true nuisance. They should be compostable to avoid the necessity of making a garbage disposal just for the potatoes or having to throw them over a cliff or fence so you don't end up picking them up again by mistake. I wish I could just put them in a composter. I wouldn't even mind if they didn't contribute to making the bonemeal.
