Pawpaw seeds - just how poisonous are they?

Full tummy | Sep 18, 2007 07:56 PM

I have recently purchased a couple of pawpaw trees. We aren't talking papaya here, but the pawpaw that grows and produces fruit all the way up here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

I understand the seeds are poisonous, but I'm trying to find out how scared I need to be about accidentally ingesting one (or more).

Anyone know?
