Solanum hispidum, 10 seeds
Hailing from Peru, this is yet another rarely grown evergreen member of the Potato/Tomato family. Solanum hispinum forms a small shrub clothed in large, velvety leaves. Blooms from spring through summer with clusters of classic star-shaped, purple flowers on yellowish flower stalks. The trunk and branches usually have small thorns that are easily missed. Flowering is followed by small roundish fruits that turn from green to dark purple and then finally to yellow upon ripening. 5 feet tall and wide. Full sun to part shade. Rich, well-drained soil. Regular watering. Hardy from zone 9 onwards. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 05/2016.
