Solanum pseudocapsicum is a nightshade species with mildly poisonous fruit. It is commonly known as the Jerusalem cherry, Madeira winter cherry, or, ambiguously, "winter cherry".
Jerusalem Cherry scientific name Solanum pseudocapsicum, or solanum capsicastrum, grows natively in Peru and Ecuador. The small, bushy plant produces dark green leaves and bright orange or red fruit. While the fruit looks tasty like a cherry tomato, they are mildly poisonous plants. The Jerusalem plant is part of the Solanaceae family, also called the nightshade family. It’s also considered an invasive species in parts of Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, where it’s regarded as a weed. The Jerusalem Cherry doesn’t get very big, reaching about one to two feet tall. It produces shiny green leaves and stems. As the plant matures, its green stems become woody and start to turn brownish. The leaves grow from stalks and are typically narrow and elongated with wavy edges.
