Fruit and Vegetables; Potato fruits
On the left are some potato fruits, on the right are cherry tomatoes. If you think plants love you, just try eating those lovely fruits on the left. See you in A and E (that's the UK equivalent of the ER for those over the Pond). Please don't do this.
Potatoes forgot to put toxin in their tubers, evolution never expects... a fork or a digging stick is bad news to a potato. The tomato is just a failed toxin producer, unless you are salicylate intolerant. In which case it did a reasonable job and you'll leave it alone.
