The Straight Dope: Are apricot seeds poisonous?

The Straight Dope: Are apricot seeds poisonous?.


About Caliche Chick

I retired from a career as an Environmental Scientist and Botanist. My first career was teaching science and English as a Second Language (ESL), and content classes for ESL students at the middle school level. I also taught introductory biology at the community college level. I have an avid interest in plants that grow with little to no irrigation. I also keep a vegetable garden, fruit trees, and back yard chickens. When I am not in my yard, I am taking Construction Technology Classes at Victor Valley College and working on my "fixer upper" home.

      I made an infusion with apricot pits. It tastes like cream soda without the bubbles. I am roasting my first batch of apricot pits. Dad told me that Mom has been using apricot pits for years. I just thought that they were almonds.
