This is an unusual situation in that there are different toxins for different parts of the plant.  The seeds contain tannins and the leaves have hydrocyanic acid.  The leaves have fairly mild toxicity but the seeds will have a strong toxicity, with only a few needed for poisoning.  The leaves will have a dermatological effect and the seeds will be neurological.    Symptoms can include:

  • Burning Sensation of Mouth, Tongue, and Throat
  • Drooling
  • Difficulty Swallowing
  • Nausea
