Naranjilla - Solanum quitoense -  A unique plant that will become a permanent part of our greenhouse.  A tomato relative that is from Latin America.  Fruits resemble little oranges on a huge (to 6 foot tall) eggplant-looking plant.  Very  long season, so I recommend growing it in a large pot and move indoors in the Fall to ripen.  Plant is very ornamental.  Fruit has a refreshing taste.  Eat when fruit is very soft to the touch.   Hopefully back someday. (UNAVAILABLE FOR 2020)
