Raw potatoes are the base ingredient for all types of potatoes with toppings, including one of the highest-healing foods in the game. There is a consistent demand for raw potatoes on the Grand Exchange, and someone has to pick them!

Potatoes can be found in potato fields, and the best free-to-play location is north of the Lumbridge cow pen. Starting off at the Lumbridge bank chest (at the Combat Academy), walk east past the bridge, and then north past the chickens. The potato field is directly to the east. Fill your inventory with potatoes, and then use the Lumbridge lodestone to teleport south of the bank chest. Bank your potatoes and repeat.

Picking potatoes takes approximately 76 seconds for an inventory of 28. It also takes 70 seconds to run back and forth from the potato field to the bank, for a run time of 146 seconds. This means that you can pick about 690 potatoes in an hour. The potatoes can be sold on the Grand Exchange, but can be difficult to sell at times. The low profit and lack of experience makes it an inefficient method for high-level players, but its lack of requirements makes it a good method for newer players. Members can use sacks to reduce the amount of time spent banking, and increase profit earned per hour.
