Black Nightshade (A mystic fruit)

Black nightshade (Solanum nigrum/americanum) is a little known, yet edible and delicious fruit. In some foraging guides it is seen as poisonous, but this is likely due to confusion with other Solanum species such as Solanum dulcamara. Here’s a video showing the characteristics of this plant, and a comparison with others that may look similar to some seekers. And of course, always verify all wild foods with a trusted expert.
