- Plukenetia volubilis is a perennial plant with somewhat hairy leaves in the Euphorbiaceae. It is native to the rain forest of South America. The plant reaches a height of 2m, with alternate, heart shaped, serrated leaves. It flowers five months after being planted, and bears seeds around the eighth month. Its seed oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and lipovitamins, which has great potential economic value to the food and pharmaceutical industries. Moreover, its oil is also a good feedstock for biodiesel production.
