Mandragora autumnalis is a perennial herb with thick tuberous roots. There is a legend that at night Mandragora's flowers shine hence the common name "Devil's Candle". Even on a cloudy day you can see that the centers of flowers stand out, "shine", it is noticable when you take a picture with a flashlight - flowers have special reflector properties. Mandrake roots contain the alkaloid hyoscymine that is used for motion sickness and as a preoperative anesthetic. In early times Mandrake had magical properties ascribed to it because the roots sometimes have humanlike form. If the plants become too dry they will exhibit summer dormancy. Mandragora autumnalis is propagated by division of the tubers in late autumn or by seed. Seed needs a period of cold moist stratification before sowing. All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested.Handling plant may cause skin irritation or allergic reaction.See picture of fruit.

Manihot esculenta, Cassava, Manihot, Tapioca, Manioc

Family: Euphorbiaceae
Cassava, Manihot, Tapioca, Manioc
Origin: South America
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.EdiblePoisonous or toxic

Cassava is a tall semiwoody perennial shrub or tree with big palmately compound leaves.

It is extensively cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions for its edible starchy tuberous root. Unfortunately, the plant contains high levels of cyanide in the form of hydrocyanic acid, and this must be removed before the root can be eaten. This can be done by peeling the root, being sure to remove all of the purple outer layer, and then boiling in at least one change of water. There is a bitter, poisonous- and a sweet, - nonpoisonous variety of cassava; however the skin stays poisonous and the sweet variety should be peeled.

At times, it is mistakenly referred to as Yucca, which is a non-edible plant from the Agave plant family.
