potato fruit

i have never in my life seen this before but potato plants with small tomato looking fruit growing on them - didn't even know it existed.
they are not my plants but my neighbours, he called me over to see this rare event.
apparently the potato fruit may have seed and if you plant the seed a new potato plant will grow. the fruit is poison.
Some varieties produce fruit and true seed more than others.  Some modern varieties have completely lost the ability.  You should save and plant seed from them, the results are very diverse.
Do NOT eat that stuff. It is toxic. Yes, potatoes you eat are roots, the actual fruit is what you have there. Not for consumption.
