Tall herb somewhat similar to C. olitorius but differing in three chambered capsules, slightly trigonous, occurring 1-3 together and with undivided beak.
 
The plant is used as medicinal. The mucilage, obtained from the plant by macerating it in water, is used as a demulcent. The bitter seeds calledIsband (Sind) and Raja Jira (Bombay) have been used by natives in fever and abdominal obstructions. The coarse fibre is employed in manufacturing cordage.
