Are Crinodendron seeds edible?

Ian Gomersall asked 13 years ago
Hi GerryWe had a party at the house the other day. One of our relations noticed our crinodendron bush was seeding and having never seen the pods before, cracked one open and tucked into the seeds.I tried one myself and they were sweet and juicy. I was wondering if you knew if these seeds are recognised as edible or if we should pop down to the poisons unit.CheersIan

Apparently they are poisonous only after a week!

No, they are not poisonous as far as I know.  But it is very unwise to try unfamiliar fruits etc. without checking them out.
