Castor beans are the seeds of the castor oil plant. The plant is native to Africa, but it is grown worldwide for its oil and ornamental value. Castor beans are highly toxic if ingested, but the oil extracted from them is used in a variety of industrial and medicinal applications.

Castor beans are commonly grown in gardens for their ornamental value, as the plant has large, attractive leaves and can reach heights of up to 10 feet. The oil extracted from the beans is used in the production of lubricants, soaps, and other industrial products. It is also used in traditional medicine.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT CASTOR BEANS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC AND SHOULD NEVER BE INGESTED. EVEN A SMALL AMOUNT OF TOXIC PROTEIN, RICIN, WHICH IS PRESENT IN THE BEANS, CAN CAUSE SEVERE ILLNESS OR DEATH. AS SUCH, IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE BEANS BE HANDLED WITH CARE AND KEPT OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS. EVERY PART OF THE PLANT IS POISONOUS.
