Most of my "Black Nightshades" have arrived.

Waiting on the West African Njama Njama Landrace and S. villosum from The Experimental Farm Network.



Fairdinkumseeds has already been mentioned here.

They have Solanum opacum (Native to Australia) along with Solanum sarrachoides - I may consider purchasing these when S. opacum comes back in stock.


SeedsOfIndia has a curious S. nigrum strain. Supposedly has edible leaves similar to the West African Njama Njama Landrace. The leaves shown on this website seem different from other S. nigrum accessions / common varieties.

Bakercreek also has some Black Nightshades.



Seed shapes/sizes/colors are differing a bit so far.

Some images are shown on the store page. The Etsy link appears to have more images than the Ebay one.

Was more than I expected that got nipped but in some ways a blessing with student teaching. The gardening and seed saving take too much of my time for student teaching.

I may make some bouquets of the branches with immature berries and see if they will finish the seed.

I set a sprinkler on the LA 2329 last night and it is one of the only things still blooming after rhe frost.

The bottom flower in my recent post is the original R-18: Cloned in the fall of 2020. I successfully cloned it again this fall. Perhaps it will survive another winter.

That's good, it makes nice babies.

My S. habrochaites with supposed insect resistances haven't flowered yet...

I may take some cuttings of them.

Also grabbed some more R18, the last batch was the best yet. So I may yet get plenty of seed for it. It has the best flowers and there are six plants and the fruits vary a bit. Some are russetted. Though the flowers are similar. Like the ones Joseph just shared photos of. Huge flowers.

Have a big batch of the LA 1410 Solanum galapagense fermenting and a smaller bag picked. Good year after all for it.

LA 2329 habrochaites hasn't released a berry yet. Have sprinklers on it tonight in case of a light frost though I suspect it will be ok.
