well lets see, it would be a potato plant stem, white potatoes are stem tubers. a stalk refers to the structure that attaches leaves to the stem called the petiole, as in celery stalk. if you are going to post science, dont be a noob.

At first i thought it was saying that Tomatoes grow above ground and potatoes grow below ground and i didn't get what the big deal was about. Also isn't nightshade really poisonous? I'm not really into botany, but i've heard of deadly nightshade.
User avatar #170 to #155 - brisineo (04/23/2013) [-]
Deadly Nightshade belongs in the same family as Tomatoes and Potatoes, yes, but is the only one where the poison (Solanine) is present in the fruit in large amounts.

Solanine is present in Tomato and Potato plants as well, but in the stalks, leaves, and unripe fruit.

Too bad it ******* poisonous...
User avatar #154 to #153 - Lainge (04/23/2013) [-]
Do you know this for a fact or do you just think all nightshade plants are poisonous because of games like oblivion or something?
User avatar #174 to #154 - themrsunshine (04/23/2013) [-]
Scientists has tried mixing tomatoes and potatoes before. The result were a poisonous plant, and you couldn't eat neither the tomato nor the tomato.

It's possible to make a tree that grows both apples and oranges, utilizing knowledge in the field of biochemistry, gardening and how to tie knots.
