Castor Bean Seeds

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A young bride in 1963, my friendly new neighbors showered me with Castor Bean seeds. Nobody knew then that the seeds contained Ricin. They were just tall exotic plants, free for the sharing. Later I learned how toxic the seeds are and wondered how many had been carried downstream to Florida by the Alapaha River. But that was a different time--that was before the grasshopper became a burden.

Review by: Rion Miller on Aug. 27, 2010 :
Good sentiments. Nice imagery. Some of the sentences ran on a little long (look at the second paragraph). Though, I think you have to use a lot of seeds to make ricin. I don't think a few beans will do it.
