Can anyone tell me a way to de-seed the custard apple other then eating it and spitting out the seeds, Also, is it true that the seeds if swallowed can harm you? Thanks in advance for any reply

The seeds are considered to be effective at dispelling intestinal parasites. I would not eat them unless I needed to though. The whole plant is medicinally valuable.
