(Solanum mammosum) This is one of the most amazing plants I have grown. Beautiful tall, thorny plants bear purple flowers, followed by long spikes of 3” yellow fruit that are curiously shaped, sort of like a cow’s udder and glowing yellow-orange in color. These 2’-5’ stems are sold for display in arrangements or alone. They fetch top prices at stores and are great for farmers’ markets. I first saw these in Thailand several years ago being sold as potted plants along a road. The long-lasting, bitter fruit are not edible.
