Hello,

Does anybody have some seeds of the Solanum torvum (turkeyberry) for me?
Maybe we can swap.

PS I live in Germany.

Thank you!

That is interesting! I've had spiny plants increasing in number each year in my garden and they do look a lot like the photo but I believe mine are Carolina nettle which is also a nightshade. I was hoping it might be an edible nettle but my research indicates that mine are poisonous. I have a difficult time growing eggplants for some reason but these things love it here. I'll have to learn more about all of them. I see these turkeyberry bushes get quite tall compared to my weeds.

Hello Bill, that plant looks also a bit like the sticky nightshade (lichee tomato).

Hallo Rob,

Solanum torvum bei google.de gibt dir: https://www.sunshine-seeds.de/Solanum-torvum-34742p.html
Wenn du nicht riesige Mengen Saatgut brauchst, ist das vermutlich billiger als die Versandkosten, die entstehen wenn du es in den USA eintauschst.

Hi Rob, thats a link, where you can buy the seeds. Unless you need huge quantities, it's probably less expensive to buy there, than swap seeds in USA and pay the shipping.
