Fruit seeds, should or should they not be removed?

For safety, seeds should always be removed. Many seeds and fruit lumps such as apples, cherries, pears, peaches, and apricots and others contain traces of cyanide and should not be consumed by birds. In addition, when you put fruit it is common for birds to seek seeds immediately!!!…

Not least it is the need to wash very well and/or peel the fruits as there may be pesticides in their shell. I’ve been saying this all the time, but I’ll explain that seeds have to do with the flower that originated the fruit. The flower takes with a lot of insecticide/pesticide and is held when the flower turns into the core into seeds that are inside the fruit, where the insecticides are also held and are poisonous, for that same reason you should not give the fruit centers that formed from the flower of the tree.


Do not give apple seeds, apricot, cherry, lychees, peach, pear, plum, orange/tangerine/nectarine/clementine, this is because these seeds come from the flower of the trees that are exposed to pesticides and this flower forms the center of the fruit and the seeds and cannot be given to contain the pesticides/insecticides that are poisonous, you should throw away that part of the fruit.

Melon seeds, papaya, pomegranate, kiwi can be offered without any problem, they were not exposed to pesticides and these are safe to give our birds without any risk.

Toxicity of Apple Seeds and other fruit seeds that originate from the flower:

Apple seeds do contain small amounts of cyanide and other pesticides used to spray the flowers that formed the seeds, which is a lethal poisonous, you are protected from the toxin by the hard seed coating, but once the hard coating is broken the poison goes to the bloodstream.
