FAKE POTATO / artificial potato


Our “FAKE POTATO” is literally not a POTATO. It looks just like the normal potatoes but it is an artificial potato which is specially designed for increasing preservability of its friends. While being stored with the real potatoes, FAKE POTATO gradually leaks out ethylene gas from the inside to inhibit germination. The product is also made out of 100% biodegradable wax (PCL) as it can be returned to the soil like a real life potato after applying it.
