Hello all,

I have today found out that what I had thought was a melon plant is in fact a thorn apple weed (Datura Stramonium - jimsonweed, devil's apple, devil's trumpet, firewood, jamestwon weed, mad apple, stink weed).

It is hugely poisonous and can kill a horse if ingested but it is growing right next to our brocolli, should we pull the brocolli up too, will it still be safe to eat?

Thank you for your help.
