Castor bean is similar to other invasive species studied along the Santa Clara River. The seeds easily germinate after fires or other land disturbances and displace native vegetation. The ricin in the seeds can cause poisoning in cattle, other animals and humans if ingested or significantly inhaled. Castor bean is a fast-growing tender perennial large shrub or small tree. Castor bean is an evergreen herbaceous or semi-woody large shrub or small tree. This robust tender perennial can grow to 40 feet tall, developing woody stems over a few years in frost-free climates. Castor is a plant that produces seeds (beans). Castor oil is produced from ripe seeds that have had their outer covering (hull) removed. Castor oil has been used as a medicine for centuries. Ricinus communis (castor oil plant) contain the toxin ricin. Seeds or beans swallowed whole with the hard outer shell intact typically prevent absorption of significant toxin. Purified ricin derived from the castor bean is highly toxic and lethal in small doses.
