We continue the study, began by classical geometers and considered more recently in [33] and [52], of complex projective varieties $X\subset\mathbb P^N$ such that through $n\geq 2$ general points of $X$ there passes an irreducible curve of degree $\delta$.

Keywords: Projective variety, rationally connected variety, Jordan algebra
