Leaping Toadstools could be used as ingredients in Potion-making when chopped, such as in Baruffio's Brain Elixir. They cost three Galleons at the Apothecary in Diagon Alley, and could be found in the Forbidden Forest.
During the 1986–1987 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, whilst Jacob's sibling was helping their friend Bill Weasley with Career Advice, Professor Pomona Sprout tasked Bill with teaching Jacob's sibling how to grow Leaping Toadstools in the Herbology Classroom to see if he was suited to becoming a Herbologist. Unfortunately, Jacob's sibling Leaping Toadstools were of poor health and unable to jump, but Professor Sprout did not discourage him, telling them all good Herbologists made mistakes before making discoveries.
Leaping Toadstools were used in the annual competition known as the Vegetable Vault, which took place in Hogsmeade. The fifth annual competition was held in Hogsmeade by at least the 2010s, with the winning toadstools being collected by Hogwarts Herbology professor Neville Longbottom, as they were the most potent.
