(Solanum melanocerasum) 75 days. Large purple berries that are cooked and sweetened, (do not eat raw). Great in pies; huge yields of fruit all summer long. Plant 14 inches apart. Strong tall plants do not have to be staked. Grow plants like peppers. Great for anyone wanting quick easy berries and a huge yield. Originated in Africa. Only eat fully ripened fruit with no green left on the berry, as unripened fruit can be poisonous.

What are the pros? 4' vigorous, loaded plants

What are the cons? Couldn't make it taste good.

Review:

Vigorous 4' plants grew easily, loaded up with berries, are loading for a second flush of berries, and are doing very well. What's not to like? Well, nothing I do seems to make the berries taste good. Tried cinnamon, lemon, sugar in plenty, and they still have a nasty taste and a worse aftertaste. Not to MY taste, anyway; but YOU might like them. The plant quality makes them worth a try.

Review:

So was not sure what I was getting into with these but it turned out to be wonderful! You do have to precook before eating but the pies were amazing! using two packages of seeds this year one was just not enough. We love these berries

Review:

I' ve grown this in zone 5a in 2017 wet cold summer. It has ripen, berries were not tasty, it is for jams and compottes more. But unfortunately I cannot grow it more, because I do not have square for it. I gave berries to neighbours, they will get seeds from it and grow them more next years.

What are the pros? love the taste!

What are the cons? too weedlike

In India the leaves are cooked in recipes and used as medicine too. Do investigate. It is a shame to throw away the leaves.

What are the pros? robust, interesting looking

What are the cons? didn't care for fruit

Review:

I'm determined to try all the garden berries until I find the ones that work for me. Unfortunately, this one didn't. It germinated beautifully, grew into an attractive plant (though with a spread that took up a fair amount of space in the garden) and was covered in berries quite early in the season. The problems: The berries took a LONG time to reach the stage that picking was recommended and didn't do it at the same time--so you kind of had to pick around the ones that were still shiny. We go to upper Michigan every summer and pick berries and have a freezer full of them. These were so inferior in flavor to what we have (or even to what we could purchase cheaply in the grocery store) that they weren't worth the bother. I suppose I could have made a somewhat palatable pie or batch of jam--but why?
