: Help! I'm trying to locate sources for the various strains of Castor Beans. Would like to buy seeds. Years ago they seemed to be readily available.
Castor beans are now considered to be a bioterrorist risk. Deadly ricin can be made from these beans. I do strongly urge that you do not persue your quest to find and buy them as you may get an unwanted visit from HSA. Even something so simple as looking for castor beans could bring you major grief.
