Castor Seeds Ricinus communis, the castor oil plant Ã¢?? is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. It is the sole species in themonotypic genus, Ricinus, and subtribe, Ricininae. The evolution of castor and its relation to other species are currently being studied using modern genetic tools. It reproduces with a mixed pollination system which favor selfing by geitonogamy but at the same time can be an out-crosser by anemophily or entomophily. Its seed is the castor bean, which, despite its name, is not a true bean. Castor is indigenous to the southeastern Mediterranean Basin, Eastern Africa, and India, but is well-known throughout tropical regions (and widely grown elsewhere as an ornamental plant).

Ricin is one of the most poisonous naturally occuring substances known in castor seeds. The seeds from the castor bean plant, Ricinus communis, are poisonous to people, animals and insects. Castor oil is a vegetable oil obtained by pressing the seeds of theCastor plant (Ricinus communis). The common name Ã¢??castor oilÃ¢??, from which the plant gets its name, probably comes from its use as a replacement for castoreum, a perfume base made from the dried perineal glands of the beaver (castor in Latin).
