(Solanums nigrum) 70 days. Here’s a most unusual Nightshade plant, collected originally by the Gettles in Umbria, Italy in the ancient roman site of Ocriculum. It was found growing along the Tiber river growing with the common black nightshade, (S. nigrum) Plants reach 2-3 feet tall, having typical nightshade leaves and white flowers. The small berries have a lot of visual interest being a bright orange—not at all the dark purple that you might expect. At maturity the plants are positively covered in clusters of brilliant orange! This species has been used as food for millenia, and we eat them here, but since this is a wild variety, we suggest eating them with caution, until you are positive you do not have sensitivities to them.

Review:

Grows well here in Tucson so far. It hasn't hit summer yet, so I'll have to see how it will do in the 100 heat. Berries are very small, but they have a lot of flavor. They don't taste sweet to me at all, more like an orange flavored tomato. I've just been eating them straight off the plant as I harvest because I can't decide what to pair them with.

Review:

This plant is just starting to produce fruit for us, and we love it! It kind of tastes like a sweet cherry tomato, but it smaller than a blueberry. It's certainly different, but I highly recommend trying it! The fruit does have a lot of seeds, but they are soft like tomato seeds, not hard like blackberries.
