maybe a pepper?

I dug up a wild muscadine in the front yard, threw it in a pot, and this lil plant started growing next to it. It looked nice so I let it go for the vine to grow up. Now its almost looks like a pepper plant and I have no idea what it may be. White flowers with round black berries. Native to Mississippi its probably poisonous. :eh:

Thanks Doc! I don't eat anything unless I absolutely know its good. Everything around here is either trying to kill you or eat you. Gonna have to move this away from the dogs.

Google S. americanum.
it could also be S. melanocerasum, but I could be wrong, a lot of wild solanums like that are considered poisonous although some like the garden huckleberry which is edible when cooked, looks some what like the plant shown I have several plants of it and really like the berries when cooked, but until your sure just what the plant is I wouldn't eat the berries.
