    Worse yet I let my twelve year old do the same.

    Am I a horrible parent?

    It was really tasty, but I have no idea what kind of pesticide I ingested.
    So far no ill effects.
    I once ate a guava that my mother got me from the exit of Autopia. This was about five years ago.

    I think it could. :lol: Surprised that someone found something to eat for free.

Maybe it's because my family owns average of commercial produce throughout California and picking roadside produce is in effect stealing and is punishable by law. (And in fact lots of money does get lost from people doing this).

    I sure hope you've recovered from this position.

    But at the same time I know this is irrational because Disney doesn't sell the produce grown there and so this wouldn't apply. Although I would worry about the high amount of pesticides that they use. There is no way the fruit would look that pristine without it.

    With the waste (human and otherwise) that is tossed in the planters, all I can say is... bon appetit.

    Insinuating that the OP isn't a "nice and respectful" person is ridiculous. The botanicals have survived just fine for over 50 years, it's going to be alright.

    I ate a bug once while on a ride. Not too hard to do. Got extra protein for free. Everyone should tank up on free bugs.

    This is where the only true Disney grapes come from: Silverado Vineyards

    ......and you lived to tell us all about it.

    Purple grapes are so much better than green ones. Especially when they have no seeds.
