Seedy kinds of fruit
Some fruit seeds you’re supposed to eat, others you’re not.
Orange seeds were long thought to be poisonous, as they contain miniscule amounts of cyanide compounds. I used to feel quite adventurous as a kid, as I loved biting off the soft skin around the orange seeds, crushing the fleshy, bitter core on my tongue, feeling like a daredevil, toying with DEATH!
Incidentally, almonds also contain cyanide, the bitter ones especially, a compound called glycoside amygdalin. When eaten, glycoside amygdalin will turn into prussic acid, a.k.a. hydrogen cyanide, which by the way was the key ingredient to Zyklon B, the lethal pellets used in the Nazi gas chambers. Lovely! Your old harmless looking almonds!
More seeds? Pomegranate. There’s the rub – I love them, I’m a veritable pomegranate FIEND. Especially when the large, fleshy, sweet ones come into season. But you should (not!) see the state of my plate after I’ve had a quarter – adorned with a neat pile of spat-out seeds. I’m not proud of myself. I just don’t like those pesky pips.
Are passion fruit seeds edible?
Passion fruit, or maracujá, is the nicest smelling and flavoured fruit on earth.
Passion fruit is filled with a gelatinous pulp that’s full of seeds. The seeds are edible, but tart. You can eat the pulp, seeds and all. The seeds crunch when eaten with the fruit pulp, and they deliver an abundance of nutritional and health benefits ranging from antioxidant protection to the maintenance of healthy cardiovascular and intestinal systems.
