Although some species of Victa are edible, many vetches contain compounds that produce hydrocyanic acid and cause cyanide poisoning. Never eat a vetch unless you are certain it is not poisonous. The name 'vetch' is from the Latin, vicia, which is thought to be derived from the Latin verb vincio, 'to blind', in reference to the climbing habit of these plants.
