Found in Minnesota, in a garden.
Zone 9, Canada. About 2 inches growing like weeds.
What variety of hibiscus is this beaut!!
What is this carrot mutation and why did it happen?
Deciduous tree with short bloom. Tulare County, CA
I don't know what that is but I love it! Where did you get it from?
My grandma got it from a place selling seeds. She forgot what it was called. I was looking up plants like it online and at first I thought it was a ornamental pumpkin plant or rather known as a type of eggplant but it doesn't have purple thorns. Then I also looked and found maybe it's a type of pumpkin chili pepper called the star of Turkey. But I have no clue.
It is some variety of Pepper for sure. A Pumpkin chilli is a good possibility.
My dad tasted it a little and said its bitter but has a little bit of heat. I definitely think they are a lot smaller than the ones you see in Google images but that may be because it's been growing inside. Thanks for your input :)
Solanum aethiopicum is another possibility.
That's another good guess too. I looked up some images of that and it looks similar the only difference is the vines they grow on are just green and not really a dark color like some of the images I saw when I looked up solanum aethipicum.
Maybe an ornamental eggplant, "pumpkin on a stick" Solanum integrafolium.
I looked Solanum Integrafolium up and the little pumpkins look similar but the vines mine grow on are a green the same color as the leaves. Most of the images for Solanum Integrafolium show the vines are a darker color.
