Wikipedia All-Stars: Jicama

Jicama is a root type vegetable found throughout the world. Here is a little factoid I learned on wiki that I would like to share with everyone:

 In contrast to the root, the remainder of the j√≠cama plant is very poisonous; the seeds contain the toxin rotenone, which is used to poison insects and fish.
I found that interesting. This wasn't supposed to funny, but rather educational. No one can ever say they don't learn anything from my blog.
