Description

Introducing the exquisite Solanum pseudocapsicum, commonly known as the Christmas cherry or winter cherry.  Despite its misleading name, this extraordinary plant produces captivating toxic berries that bear a striking resemblance to cherries or cherry tomatoes. In the midst of the lush, undulating foliage, this plant gracefully gives rise to delicate, white flowers with a star-like shape. After the pollination process, the berries undergo a transformation from their initial colour to a vibrant shade of green. Over time, they gradually transition into a lovely orange hue, and persistently stay attached to the plant. It is advisable to consider using a Jerusalem Cherry primarily as a decorative plant, as the berries it produces may have potentially harmful effects. It is recommended to exercise caution by keeping it out of the reach of small children and pets.
