Cherry pits are poisonous if you ate a TON of them but if you only swallowed one, you will be just fine.

Apparently, yes. “Cherry pits, and seeds from related fruits, including peaches, plums, almonds, pears, and apricots, contain cyanogenic glycosides. Your body can detoxify small quantities of cyanide compounds. If you accidentally eat a cherry pit in a pie or swallow an apple seed or two, you’ll be fine.”

Will you die from ingesting one? No hahah, I would have died a long time ago if they were that dangerous.

I believe the inside is poisonous, however the stomach acid will not erode  the pit inside enough to actually hurt you. If broke it open and ate what was inside it might make you nauseous, but it still won’t kill you. You will just pass it.

@FutureMrs86:  Lol! Couldn’t help but laugh at your thread title! Don’t google or WebMd anything. I always have cancer when doing this. By The Way, you’ll be fine from the cherry pit.

Except now you’ll grow a cherry tree in your stomach.

LOL that’s what I used to think when I was a kid and swallowed orange seeds!

@sehrler:  Or a watermelon seed! My Mom would always tell me I would look pregnant for the rest of my life if I swallowed one. Terrible joke.

We used to swallow cherry pits all the time as kids. You could eat cherries faster that way!

The digestion will not affect the pit at all. It will make another appearance in a day or two, depending on how fast your digestive system works!
