So, this may be known by pretty much everyone else in the world, but I decided to leave a few of my ground cherries in the husks to ripen more off the plant, and WOW! It seems like the flavor increased tenfold. I'd just been eating them as the fell from the plant, but no more.

I have an actual bittersweet nightshade that is a weed. I plan on letting it live so I can plant the seeds next year. Its actually pretty cool. I might hybridize it with a tomato or a potato just to see the outcome


Is that possible?

Well I wouldnt eat more than a berry a week. It shouldnt contain any Solanine but it is edible.
