    hey everyone just thought id share a little story and the fact the crabs like red Organic Cherrys...

    i had put one( cherry) in the medium and small crab tank my 20 long and
    i turned my back for about 10 mins then went back to fill their water bowl when i notice the cherry was GONE!!! i looked all over the tank an finally found my smallest crab ( noname) hudled in the coner holding this hugh cherry !! it look like my little 6 year old brother on christmas morning holding on to the bigest badest present he could find..

    Currently im debating on wether to keep the little guy. so far keeping is wining. if only i could come up with a name for the little boy...hmmmm

    Oh, yes, mine like cherries too. I'm not sure what variety, but I know they are "cherry red" and very tart! But I feed them dehydrated, which concentrates the sugars.

    Um, cherries are on the unsafe foods list under "Prunus species trees." Contain cyanide! Not listed separately as "cherries."

    I posted yesterday, and my post disappeared, but I would love to get a clarification! Cherries are on the Unsafe Foods List under "Prunus species trees." I understand that for humans it's only the pits that are poisonous. Is this the case with cherries? Have food trials recently shown that cherries are safe, but the list hasn't yet been updated? I would love to give my crabs cherries if they're safe, because they are probably color-enhancing! Thanks for your time in answering.

    I really can't speak to why cherries are not on the safe list, but I can say that the pit, bark, and leaves--pretty much everything but the fruit itself is poisonous and should not be fed. I tried to conduct a trial this summer on the blossoms, but could not be sure whether the damage to the blossoms was due to trampling or eating. And as you know, blossoms on trees don't last long...
    They do have some color-enhancing elements and a fair amount of calcium (13mg in 100 grams of cherries).

    Cherry's have always been on the safe list. Under the unsafe wood list it lists cherry.
