Kangaroo apple Solanum laciniatum, from here.

Belongs within: Solanales.

The Solanoideae is a clade within the Solanaceae characterised by the production of fleshy fruits with flattened seeds containing curved embryos (Olmstead et al. 2008). The derived succulent genus Nolana, sometimes recognised as a separate family from Solanaceae, is shown by molecular analysis to be positioned within the Solanoideae. Members of this genus are native to coastal deserts of western South America. The genus Solanum includes a number of economically significant species, most prominently the potato S. tuberosum, tomato S. lycopersicum and eggplant S. melongena. Conversely, other Solanum species such as the Jerusalem cherry S. pseudo-capsicum and apple of Sodom S. sodomaeum are highly toxic. The black nightshade S. nigrum appears to have both toxic and edible varieties. Various species of Capsicum, bell peppers and chilis, are grown for their hot-flavoured fruit. Members of the genus Physalis have fruit with an enlarged persistent calyx forming a papery husk and include the cape gooseberry P. peruviana and tomatillo P. philadelphica.
