I'm new to the forums, but I've long enjoyed all the great videos being put out.
I need some help identifying a wild fruit that has been growing right by my front porch. it looks like it could be some sort of nightshade, which could mean anything from wild tomatoes to poison death. It is definitely an annual in my climate (Southwest Kansas), but it keeps coming back year after year. It doesn't get more than 1.5-2 feet tall, has some vine-like tendencies, produces white and yellow flowers which turn into pea or larger-sized blue fruits that, when cut open, look a lot like the inside of a very tiny tomato. they seem to produce prolific amounts of these fruits for their size, and if they were edible, I'd love to see what potential they had for pies or jams or something like that, but I'm just not sure. Any ideas? I hope the pictures come through and are helpful!
http://greengopost.com/american-nightshade-poisoning-not/ I know that I might be opening a can of worms here, but I wasn't even close to aware of the debate going on about this species. From what I can understand of this post, and based on the youtube video linked on the page, I theoretically should be able to eat the ripe berries without fear of harm, but I'm still open to discussion here - thoughts?
