    I read an interview in New York Times Magazine with Christopher Walken several years ago (4 or 5 years ago?) where he talked about otters being killed by tomato stems if you threw them down the drain, this HAS to be a direct response to that!

    he even said “the poor little otters”…

    Maybe it has to do with tomato stems/leaves/roots being highly toxic? They’re part of the belladonna family I think….

    • NU UH.
      Tomatoes are from family Solanaceae. This family also includes potatoes, peppers, eggplants, and the deadly nightshade. Most of them are toxic due to a variety of alkaloids. If a child eats 3 berries from the deadly nightshade, they’re dead. Only ripe tomatoes are non-toxic, while the rest of the plant including unripe tomatoes contain tomatine (although there’s some way to cook unripe tomatoes that destroys the toxins). Potatoes can be toxic too if exposed to light for too long.

    true

    For a long time, tomatoes themselves were thought to be poisonous.
