The whole tree, especially the wood, bark, seeds and leaves are poisonous. This does not apply to the flowers.

Robinia is used as a replacement for expensive teak wood. Since it is impregnated, you do not come into contact with the poisonous robin. Toys used for small children are not suitable.

🛑 Attention: It must not be put in the mouth. Robinia wood should not be sanded without a face mask (e.g. when renovating garden furniture), drilled or sawed in closed rooms.

The plucked petals can be used to make a syrup that tastes good.
