The Toxic Properties of Cucumis myriocarpus Naud., and Cucumis africanus Linn



The Toxic Properties of Cucumis myriocarpus Naud., and Cucumis africanus Linn



Union of S. Africa. Report, Director Vet. Services: 769-775



Both these plants, especially when the fruits are ripe, have been found to be toxic for animals. The toxic principle is stable and will resist prolonged boiling. C. myriocarpus appears to contain more of the principle than C. africanus, and the principle is possibly of a resinous nature.
