Cherries are a very popular fruit used in cooking, liqueur production, or eaten raw. They are from the same family as plums, apricots, and peaches.

All of the previously mentioned fruits contain highly poisonous compounds in their leaves and seeds. Almonds are also a member of this family but they are the only fruit which is harvested especially for its seeds.

When the seeds of cherries are crushed, chewed, or even slightly injured, they produce prussic acid hydrogen cyanide. Next time you are eating cherries, remember not to suck on or chew the pip.
