Are gumballs from the gumball tree poisonous?
By Linda from Tryon, NC
American Sweetgum trees can be found throughout must of the eastern US. The balls of the trees are modified fruits that house the seeds until the balls ripen and release the seeds. While you can't eat the balls or the seeds, pioneers once peeled the bark and scraped the resin-like solid to produce chewing gum and medicines. Good luck.
