Cannot identify plant
lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Unknown plant, 900mm high, seemingly of tomato type growing randomly. Stem, leaf, and purple flower similar to tomato /potato. Fruits are single, i.e. not vine clusters, tiny (10mm diameter), jet black and seeded as tomato.
A concentration is adjacent to raspberry canes fruit ignored by birds, but tastes sweet (single fruit test)
This plant is not uncommon locally, growing weed like, but no one knows what it is or if safely edible...HELP !!!! grandchildren at risk?????
