Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

Well... If I am going to try to grow new and unusual edibles, then I have to taste them. And after all, someone did go to the trouble of collecting the seed and sending it to me...

The berries of Solanum nigrum that I ate were very ripe, and very delicious, and very upsetting. They probably would have been fine if I had cooked them rather than eating them raw.

The worst berry I have eaten was a ripe potato berry. It was very sweet, but immediately emetic. So no possibility of poisoning from that one. I'd toss my cookies before it could take effect.
