Thorn Apple


Datura is known by many names, and Thorn Apple well describes the seed pod of the plant. Though poisonous, Datura is famous for it's use as a hallucinogen. Check out Wikipedia's entertaining anecdote explaining how this plant earned the nickname Jamestown Weed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datura_stramonium.
