I have had a trachycarpus fortunei for the past seven years and this is the frist year that it has flowered, after reading up online I found out that fruit would come after the flowers. I have a small dog and grandchildren who are into everything so I need to know if the fruit will be poisionous and if it is how I will get rid of the fruit safely.

Thank you for the help.

According to the American SPCA the fruit is not poisonous for dogs and cats. But if you are really worried, why not just cut the fruit off as it appears? Shouldn't do the plant any harm. Seems a shame to get rid of such a lovely palm.
