plant I grew up with in the Rio Grande valley. A couple months ago there was a thread regarding castor bean. I mentioned that Mother grew Panamanian castor bean. I never knew the botanical name.
I found it while looking for seeds at Onalee's. aka bellyache plant. I remember if the sap got on our clothes, it looked like iodine.

Jatropha gossypifolia
