Our mystery seeds this week are from a plant that is full of contradictions.

The seeds are some of the smallest we have featured, but the mature plant is fairly large.

These are the pods.

The plant is poisonous, containing a chemical that can be used as an insecticide, but it is grown as a crop in many parts of the world.

Do you recognize what contradictory plant these seeds are from? If you choose to, please leave a comment with your ideas.

Mystery Seed answers and new Mystery Seeds are posted on Tuesdays.

Edit:  the answer is now posted.
