Are Monrovia's pittosporum tenufolium golf ball kohuhu poisonous? The California Poison Control Center said that most pittosporum are majorly toxic, except for tobira and tenufolium. Being that your tenufolium is a new variety, I need to know if it is poisonous before I plant it. Thank you.

Pittosporum tenuifolium produces berries which can be poisonous if eaten. If you're at all concerned about having plants with the potential to be toxic, I'd avoid all Pittosporums.
