  1. I went on an ambulance call this summer when these were still green. Some young kids had convinced a 4 year old to eat one of these and told her it was broccoli. Since all we had was the bunches of green berries bunched up, I had no idea what it was out of context. We had to do some scrambling to figure it out. Luckily the police officer on the call knew a botanist and double luckily we now have cell phones! Then we called poison control…they said not to worry cause most kids spit most of it out. And the worst of it was that they have little prickers that will sting the kids and to give them something cold–which I had already done based on the symptoms! 🙂

  2. I’m pretty sure it is Araceae fruits (Aroid) but I am not sure the genera, it could be jack in the pulpit (Arisaema). Anyway, as other Aroid the seed could be poisonous.
