Common Ground-Cherry

Yesterday I found out that the nightshade-looking plant outside the back door is “Common Ground_Cherry”

This is what the flower looks like. It tends to hang downward like many nightshade flowers do. I had to stoop and contort myself in order to get this picture. Looking at it eye-level (rather than from below like this picture), the flower can look like a hanging bell.

I read that the fruit can be harvested and eaten. The article I read is on Merriwether’s Guide To Foraging Texas (click here to view).
