this story was on the TV over the weekend. The issue was that the nightshade berries were unripe: i.e. green.
they are about the same size and colour as the peas, but had a little stalk. colour grading not an option I would think.
Lets not grow deadly nightshade and peas in the same paddock..
Pffttt - you're being far to simplistic.
How about making boy racers repay their debts to society by taste testing frozen veges?
