Umm... hello? Nobody is thinking of the tato from fallout 4?
@Ryzzmac, that's the first thing that came to mind too
@Y0UR C0NSCIENCE, same.
@Ryzzmac, mutfruit master race.
This knowledge is concerning because nightshade... Ya know..... Is uh... Poisonous.....?
@realsteel98, the green parts of a potato plant ARE poisonous, but the spud usually isn't, no clue about tomatoes though
@irishdude, keyword: usually
@irishdude, tomatoes we're not eaten until the late 17th century because people assumed they we're poisonous because the leaves are poisonous.
@irishdude, the whole tomato is poisonous and up until a few hundred years ago no one would eat them because they were nightshades. Then a few people wanted to prove the world wrong so the ate the tomato's in public and lived! They where promptly burned at the stake and accused of being evil witches. Then eventually science proved they were only poisonous in huge doses and they tasted good, and everyone felt bad but ate good. The End. Fun fact: tomatoes used to be thought of as the forbidden fruit from the bible.
@stigmaoftherose, more likely that the acid of the tomato often began to corrode their lead plates, which would cause them to ingest lead every time they ate and eventually get lead poisoning
@realsteel98, This is why you don't eat potatoes that have started to turn green under the skin. That's poisonous. Though you'd have to eat a lot to kill you, usually it'll just give you stomach problems.
@realsteel98, the raw potato plant itself is poisonous
@InsanityWolf404, raw potatoes aren't poisonous; raw starches will just be indigestible
@Josiah Bartlett, I know, good thing I said the "raw potato plant itself"
Unrelated but IT'S MAH BIRTHDAY

@Hamilton Porter, one of my favorite episodes... *nostalgic stare*
So when you add tomatoes go fries... you could call them fritoes..... eh?
@lockke, I love friedtoes
I prefer pomatoes
Yea but considering both are individual vegetation they'd provably need a clusterf*ck of nutrients and time for each vegetable to actually develop properly.
I'm sorry everyone gimme a sec I'll find the funny later
@Sir Bionic, Except potatoes actually don't require much nutrients to begin with
@Davrial, I see you've been enrolled in the university of latvia
@Sir Bionic, grafted plants don't require a ton of nutrients...I had to take botany
@Nesssy, I appreciate the community coming together to enlighten me and correct my ignorance but was the downvote necessary?
@Sir Bionic, downvotes are always necessary
As an Elder Scrolls player, I can confirm that this is false.
I actually remember a relative using a similar technique to convert trees to a different species or even "revive" trees. There was a dead stump with a lot of holes in it so he stuck in a bunch of fresh twigs or something like that. It's kind of hard to remember. The twigs actually grew and sprouted as if they would normally.
I beleive fallout already dubbed these Tatos
Just rip out an entirely good tomato plant that normally will continue to produce tomatoes. -_-
Ayyy that's my plant
Eggplant is part of nightshade family
@zac bagans, so is marijuana!
This Khajiit has heard many tales of nightshade. Travelers will do well to stay away
If they do this with a pig and a cow then I will be impressed
I think this would be bad for the plant. To take out the potatoes you'd have to take out the plant, potentially killing the tomatoes.
@realsteel98, Not a typo, the potatoes would be fine, the tomatoes not.
@TR8R, ;-; Never mind.
@realsteel98, Dont worry, the joke didnt go over everyone's heads xD
@TR8R, you can harvest potatoes without killing the plant, although most farming techniques involve completely killing the plant because replanting en masse can be a pain
I don't know what to do with this information because im too lazy to make it
@K1lgore, the know-how involved in crossbreeding 2 plants though, that's no issue
