CASTOR OIL PLANT, Green (Ricinus communis)


Ricinus communis (castorbean) is an herbaceous plant or semi-woody large shrub or small tree (family Euphorbiaceae). It grows quickly in mild climates while being right at home in either hot & humid or hot & dry climate conditions. A real showy exotic plant ideal for xeriscaping or seed oil for biodiesel production. It has escaped cultivation to become a noxious weed in southern and central California. Castorbean contains ricin, an extremely toxic chemical that can kill an adult who consumes only four to eight seeds. Handling foliage and seeds can cause severe dermatitis.
