BRIEF: Are immature apricots as poisonous as mature apricots?


QUESTION:
Are these tiny green apricot "babies" as toxic as the mature apricot?

ANSWER:

There is some of the cyanide releasing "amygdalin" or "prunasin" glycoside in the immature apricots, too. As a practical matter, unless your dogs are crunching and swallowing an bunches lot of these, I doubt there is much danger.
