Its leaves are thick and long with large white veins.
Its seeds are in fruits of the form of a cherry tomato and orange color.
It usually fructifies from December to February.
This shamanic herb is very rich in alkaloids, which give it highly toxic properties similar to that of Black henbane, deadly nightshade or jimson weed.
It is surrounded by many legends, the Ancients attributing to it extraordinary magic virtues.
Many therapeutic and medicinal virtues are attributed to it.
