The unusual nightshade plant originated in Italy. Plants reach 60-90cm, having typical nightshade leaves and white flowers, and the small berries have a bright green color. Use only ripe fruit for eating. The ripe fruits are great fresh, cooked, or preserved. They’re often used in pies and preserves and are usually heavily sweetened. Unripe green berries contain toxins and should not be eaten.
Sowing: Sow seeds indoors before the last frost ¼” deep. Thin seedlings when 2″ tall and transplanted into individual pots. Plant outdoors in rows 36″ apart.
