I've had an Araucaria tree in my garden for more than 30 years. Today a fruit fell off the tree. It looks just like this one:

Araucaria fruit

I want to know if it is toxic?

Can I eat it? If so, how?

Araucaria araucana is an evergreen. The pictured "fruit" is actually more of a cone (which I don't think you'd want to eat). However, the seeds are edible, and look like this:

Araucaria seeds

Let the cone dry and it should open up.
