Trying to make a bow-drill fire with the wrong materials is a good way to lose your temper. If you try to start a fire with a hand-drill using sappy materials, ie: pine or maple, you will have blisters but no fire.

Here are a few types of wood that I've used or look like they fit the bill.

a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple.

The unripe green fruits can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can create rashes in the skin, because both contain potassium oxalate: that is the reason why the fruits have to be consumed when the scales lift up.

The fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up

  Pottering around in the Garden - War on Weeds July 06, 2012 2822
Hey everyone I just wanted to tell you a little about my garden and what I've been up to lately garden-wise.

---------------------------------------------------------------

When I first arrived at my little patch of earth 1.6 years ago the garden was a mess of neglect overrun with weeds. The garden was composed of about 90% fishbone fern, agapanthus and privet. The last 10% contained

Most Important Plant Families to Know
  Most Important Plant Families to Know June 23, 2012 4517
These are the most common plant families found in North America. Learning all of these families is easier than you think. You already know most of them by other names. All plant families end in ACEAE, pronounced "AH-SAY-AI" in Latin, and sometimes, "AH-SEE-AY" in English.

Wikipedia:
Root chicory contains volatile oils similar to those found in plants in the related genus Tanacetum which includes Tansy, and is similarly effective at eliminating intestinal worms. All parts of the plant contain these volatile oils, with the majority of the toxic components concentrated in the plant's root.[16]

The milky sap of this plant is toxic, and may cause blindness if it comes in contact with the eye.
Sheep can surprisingly eat this with no problem, but not horses or cattle.

The Heath Banksia is an attractive shrub with bright orange/red flowers. It is a good bird attracting plant especially the nectar eating types.

In summer when the flowers are dripping with nectar you can smell the almost sickeningly sweet scent a mile away. The nectar can be sucked from the flowers or flowers can be dunked in water to produce a sweet drink.

I saw this beautiful plant at Frontier City in Oklahoma City. It was quite tall, probably 4 ft. with large shiny dark green leaves and beautiful light purple flowers with bits of magenta. I asked, but no one knew what it was. I tried all the flower ID's but none matched. Thanks! Tall plant with light purple flowers
