WOW! I did not think they were edible to humans either! Learn something new every day. I am thinking they taste really bad....wonder why....perhaps I must have tasted one as a child or something - though I do not remember doing that. Thanks for sharing! My thought on strange plant for a children's play area was related to the super sharp thorns on this plant.

after reading your caption I wanted to see how poisonous they are because I had been told that they were.
I found this: Pyracantha berries are mildly poisonous as they contain Cyanogenic glycosides and can cause mild gastro-intestinal problems; they are edible only when crushed and washed under running water. They have been made into jelly.

I was so surprised to read that you can eat them at all. Wow.
