ID requested DSC4032: The seeds are of a creeper which has nearly dried. The green leaves are of the host plant.

– There is a difference between CREEPER and a CLIMBER. This is for sure a climber, because Creepers cant climb!!!
This should be Abrus precatorius and the leaves here dont belong to the plant.

Gunj for ID : 050511 : AK-2: Taken at Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai, Maharashtra.
Flowers photographed on 20th Dec, 2007, pods on 9th April,2011.
The leaves are edible, used in Supari mixture.
The seeds are white…unlike the other two which are red.
Flowers are also white in color.


Abrus precatorius (white seeded)


Also I have seen green (with white) seeds of this. Is mutation responsible for this production of varied colored seeds or any cross-over? I never knew this plant is poisonous. In Tamil, it is called ‘Pilliyar kannu’ which transliterates into ‘Eye of L.Ganesha’; used for pressing eyes in clay idols.



In spite of being highly poisonous the seeds had been used for weights (Rati), and also for making rosaries. The seeds are not dangerous as long as the hard seedcoat is intact, but especially when they are drilled to be used in rosaries they are highly dangerous and can be fatal if ingested.


Yes just found out even white variety is poisonous http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15987020

Yes there are white varieties… I have seen photoged and collected white seeds of these… as curiosity in  a hot house in NY, and at a students learning garden of an Ayruvedic college in India… local village gardeners said its used for doing magic… they seemed to be all afraid of the seeds….


I have seen only four colour-forms of Abrus precatorius seeds. But local nati-vaidhyas in TN say there is a green form which is said to be very rare and most efficacious among all. But I yet to come across with that. The attached picture is sourced from FRLHT (now IAIM)’s Image Library.


Dear all please find the uses of Abrus precatorius in Orissa (this is a compiled information from different tribal districts of Orissa, where they use the same species for different purposes)

Uses: The seeds are valued in making necklaces for their bright coloration. The roots are used for gonorrhea and jaundice. The oil extracted from seeds is used to promote the growth of human hair. The species is also used by the tribal against dog bites, backache, knee pain, mouth ulcers and stomachache.

Please check the Sanskrit names मधुयष्टिका madhuyashtika, रक्तिका raktika
It shows the properties of herbs not name and in ancient Indian literature there are plus 18 plants mentioned under category of मधुयष्टिका and in category raktika, tens of plants are there.

The red shiny seeds with characteristic black spot is unforgettable.
The leaves are ingredient of Paan.


The leaves are ingredient of Paan, but I believe the seeds are poisonous.


Yes, the seeds are known to be poisonous, though the leaves are one of the main ingredients of paan.
Also discussed in earlier posts, is the use of रती rati seeds by goldsmiths in the past as unit of weight.

Abrus precatorius(ratti) – Gulaganji plants exhibit wide open beautiful red-black seed pods:  The Bettahalli village, Mysore district presents a dry, colorless landscape in March with wild shrubs wilting away, except for one tiny exception. At the village foothills, dozens of Gulaganji plants exhibit wide open beautiful red-black seed pods, shining brightly in the scorching sun. They possess numerous medicinal values. But, never take anything at face value in nature – the small quantities are known to be highly poisonous & are known to kill live stock!

Also, used in weighing gold.

KOONCH (কুঁচ) in Bengali + butterfly + teal found at the same place


Very beautiful pictures. The butterfly in picture is PioneerBelenois aurota. The mating pair is just resting on the plant. Abrus precatorius aka the Crab eyed creeper is called ‘Goonj’ गुञ्ज in Marathi. It is larval host plant of Indian Sunbeam and Common Cerulean butterflies….. their larva are attended by ants.


Thanks … for the interesting information.

The plant butterfly interactions are really interesting.

I hope the larval host plants for Pioneer butterflies are from Capparaceae family.


The Pioneer indeed does lay eggs on Capparaceae members like C.rheedi, C.sepiaria, C.spinosa, C.zelyanica, Cadaba fruicosa and Maerua oblongifolia……


Certainly there were many Capparis spiaria and C. zeylanica in that place. Thank you once again.


The birds in the last shot are Lesser whistling Ducks.

Goof pics … In an inflorescence flowers and young pods can be seen. Seeds are equally beautiful and used as aborifacient.


Probably you meant to say …abortifacient?


Lovely pics … Used to have this creeper in our quarters in plenty during my childhood. I used to make malas of these pink seeds. My own bead studio. Thank you for sharing

wonders of seeds and stories ! (mixed thread):  ……………………


This is the only seed I loved to collect in my childhood. I spent my early childhood in a town. Later, when I was 12, we moved to the village we are still living.

After moving in to our new home, our own, I searched the surroundings. To my utter amazement I noticed the seeds of KUNCH in a wasteplace behind our new building. My mom told me that it was called KUNCH and it was used to weigh gold! From that day I regularly visited the place to collect KUNCH seeds. I had a small container filled with these beautiful seeds.
But later on, I have never found this vine anywhere. Even after becoming a member of this group, when I searched new places for new species, I have seen it only once in Hooghly. The 2nd time it was in Jhargram.

Someone told me that this vine can be seen in places where there is enough human excreta!
