What Lal Arandi Beej - Red Castor Seeds (Ricinus communis):
Ricinus communis is a native plant that grows in the area of north-eastern Africa (i.e., Somalia and possibly Ethiopia). Currently, naturalized populations of R. communis can be found across the African continent, from the Atlantic coast to the Red Sea, from Tunisia to South Africa, and on islands in the Indian Ocean. It is widely cultivated and naturalized in tropical and subtropical regions of America, many temperature areas of Europe, and India. In South India, the Tamil local name is amanakku.
Ricinus communis is a fast-growing shrub or small tree which is a highly prolific and precocious producer of toxic seeds, very adaptable to different environments and has been widely distributed by man. It is reported invasive or weedy in many countries particularly in the tropics and since dense thickets shade out native flora it is able to have negative impacts on biodiversity.
