    As well as cherrys(especialy pits and leaves) and all stone fruit. I wouldn`t worry as long as you are eating the edible part.

    Actually Rose it`s cyanide in the apple seeds(wich gives them a almond like taste). I love reading up in books on the toxic propertys od plants and there effects on humans.(Always checking out to see if the library has any new ones)
