Ricinus, Castor bean seeds

Our store offers seeds of castor bean, an ornamental and medicinal plant. You will also find a green-leaved cultivar in our store. All castor bean seeds sold in our store stand out with high quality and germination capacity, because they come exclusively from proven producers.

Castor bean grows up to 1.5 m tall and produces palmate leaves that take on red-purplish colour. Characteristic, red inflorescences appear on the plants in summer and bloom until the first autumn frosts. Castor oil, highly coveted by the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, is produced from castor bean seeds. The green-leaved variety, as the name correctly suggests, develops green foliage and flowers.

Castor bean planted in a garden effectively repels moles and mole crickets.
