This plant grows wild in many areas of southern California. It's a nice flowering plant.

It is one of the nicest Solanum in my opinion. I had one in the ground last year and it grew like boogery but was shy to flower.

I have some seedlings of S.pyracanthum coming along - a beast of a plant!

That's an interesting one. I love S. quitoense which is similar with the spines. The fruit is edible. It likes the cooler weather like up in the San Francisco Bay Area, though. It's very tender to cold (it doesn't survive freezing temps).

I'm rather wary of eating Solanum fruits!

You don't like tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and peppers? These are all in the same family.

S. quitoense is a widely cultivated crop in South America. The fruit is very good.
