A Photo A Day - No. 57

Kangaroo Apple Solanum aviculare

Although the fruits of this native plant are edible when fully ripe
all other parts a quite toxic.

But the chooks leave it alone and wait for the fruit to fall!

I don't eat the fruit but have heard it makes a tasty chutney.
Being related to tomatoes I guess that makes sense.
