potato tree, Solanum erianthum

Potato tree is apparently named for the potato sized and shaped leaves. There are no tubers, and the fruit is a berry. It's native to the American tropics, but now has been spread to most warm areas. It's all poisonous, but the cooked fruit is eaten in south Asia. This small tree occurs in FL and TX. Broward Co FL, 3/20/16.
