(Solanum sisymbriifolium);

Commonly known as  litchi tomato, Morelle de Balbis. vila-vila, sticky nightshade, red buffalo-bur, or the fire-and-ice plant.

The small edible fruits are red on the outside and yellow inside. It grows inside a spiny, green husk. When the fruit is ripe it is easily removed from the stem. The flavor reminds us of cherries.   We are thinking of making jam from it.
