All parts of the plant are poisonous.  The seeds may be more toxic than the
fruit.  The fruit has been eaten historically, with the seeds removed.  I
don't know if people have different sensitivity to it.

Today I ate two flower clusters (spikes) of red elderberry.  They
were bitter and disagreeable.  I was thinking they would be sweet.
Didn't think too much about it after I ate them but several hours
later I got a tingling tongue and mouth and vomited.  Can't really
say for sure it was the flowers but probably.
