Jack's Bean
from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canavalia:
... jack-beans. The species of Canavalia endemic to the Hawaiian Islands were named ʻāwikiwiki by the Native Hawaiians. That name means essentially "the very quick one"[2] and comes from the Hawaiian word for "fast" that has also been appropriated into the name "Wikipedia". The genus name "Canavalia" is derived from the Malabar word for the species, kavavali, which means "forest climber".

This bean is made famous in the story of 'Jack and the Bean stalk'. That story of robbery and murder (of the giant) tells children that it is OK to steal and kill.

I will not tell the story here or to my children.
