Other languages[edit]

There seems to be a problem with the related pages in other languages. It seems this page should be linked to the list shown on http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abricot, for instance. When attempting to edit, a message appears saying there is already a wikipedia page in English linked to the this one in French. I am a novice user and don't know how to solve this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.29.218.99 (talk) 10:19, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. I've fixed it by using the Merge.js gadget on Wikidata. Graham87 14:40, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Cyanide content[edit]

The article says (added 4 years ago):

Kernels contain between 2.05% and 2.40% hydrocyanic acid

I thing that much cyanide would have been acutely toxic, and the figure contradicts the one in Apricot kernel:

On average, bitter apricot kernels contain about 5% amygdalin and sweet kernels about 0.9% amygdalin. These values correspond to 0.3% and 0.05% of cyanide.

So I believe the correct figures are 0.05% and 0.40% - the inflated figures are caused either by being incorrectly copied from the source, or by an actual typo in source. (Compare the apocryphal tale about the iron content in spinach.) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 05:40, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

  • I have replaced the reference with the one from Apricot kernel. For the record, the removed reference was: Medicinal and Poisonous Plants of Southern and Eastern Africa - Watt & Breyer-Brandwijk (1962) - Mike Rosoft (talk) 04:37, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Bad attribution[edit]

In note 19, it is stated that the note about Hardouin has something to do with Bill Thayer; it doesn't. See the bottom of the linked page; the site, and the note, is by James Eason. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.136.6.157 (talk) 13:37, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Not anymore it doesn't. I fixed it about a day after you brought up that concern. Graham87 14:08, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Edit request: language link[edit]

The link to the German Wikipedia article "Aprikose" is missing. Can someone more technically gifted than me activate the link? Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.131.171.164 (talk) 20:47, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

It's attached to the English article Prunus armeniaca because the German Wikipedia doesn't have a stand-alone article about the species; its page covers both the species and the fruit/tree. Graham87 05:55, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
