Small bushy plant with small dark green leathery leaves and greenish-white flowers.
Particularly striking round fruit, first green, then yellow, later painted in coral red. Fruits adorn the plant for many months. The fruit is extremely similar to cherry tomatoes in taste and texture, and are therefore easily confused with them.
CAUTION PLANT IS TOXIC: The plant poison is primarily solanocapsine, which is similar to other alkaloids found in their genus, such as solanine and atropine. Although the toxin is poisonous, it is generally not life-threatening to humans but highly poisonous to dogs, cats, and some birds.
