Again this is a friend of mine. At 6 she had been told that eggs were chicken seeds. She reasoned that she could grow a chicken tree/plant with an egg from the refrigerator. (She had a lot of plants in her room that she took good care of, even at 6). She potted the egg in dirt and put the pot near the window in her room, watering it everyday and spraying it to keep bugs away. She learned the truth when her mother asked her what kind of plant was in the pot of dirt by the window (noticing nothing was growing there even after 3 months of watering/sunshine). Her mother got the biggest laugh when her daughter said she was growing a chicken tree.

I remember when one of my elementary school friends came over and said that the sunflower seeds in our whole wheat bread were buggers. I continue to avoid bread containing sunflower seeds.

When I was little, my mom and aunt used to tell me if I ate black watermelon seeds I would grow a flower on my head.
They also said the same thing to me when they found out I ate a sheet of paper. I was so scared.

when i was about 5 or 6 my mum always told me to be very careful not to swallow any watermellon seeds because if i did a watermellon would start growing in my tummy and no body would ever be able to get it out. i believed this because my older sister told me our dad (who had a very big belly) had swallowed some seeds and he had a watermellon in his tummy... he still has a big belly maybe its still in there.

My brother was never the nicest kid in the world. It didn't help that when I was younger, I was also gullible enough to do just about anything. So, naturally, when my aunt sent one those wreaths made from dried chile peppers, my brother had to take advantage of it. He told me that the seeds tasted just like bubblegum, which I was pretty obsessed with then. So, I unwittingly ate at least a spoonful of them, not remotely tasting the bubblegum that had been promised. I was rather sick for the rest of the day. I did get back at my brother, though, as I threw up all over him.

I used to refuse to eat seeds because I thought they were radioactive (this was around the time of the Chernobyl disaster)
