  Article Amendment  
  Our previous issue (volume 3, issue 2) featured an article on growing ornamental vegetables, in which the author recommended growing Hyacinth beans (Dolichos lablab) for both ornamental and eating purposes.

It has been brought to our attention that this plant contains a naturally occurring toxic compound. This compound, cyanogenic glucoside, is also found in apple seeds, peach and apricot pits and various other produce. Consumed in large quantities, the compound is considered toxic.

As a result, we have opted to err on the side of caution and have removed the reference from the article.
