>From the site of Paul Christian:

Tubers are about 10cm diameter and just under 50gm in weight. These are
naturally covered in tiny oxalate crystals which repel and kill insects and
wildlife, hence the latin name, the crystals may also irritate sensitive
human skins, so wash you hands after handling them and be warned that the
tubers, in common with most aroids, (Arum, Biarum, Arisaema etc) are
poisonous if eaten.
