Apple is a hardy fruit that grows in colder climates. The apple tree, originated in Central Asia, is in the rose family best known for its juicy, tasty fruit.

It is considered to be a low-cost fruit harvestable all over the world.

Seeds

Apple seeds contain small amounts of amygdalin, a sugar and cyanide compound known as a cyanogenic glycoside. Ingesting small amounts of apple seeds causes no ill effects, but consumption of extremely large doses can cause adverse reactions.

It may take several hours before the poison takes effect.
