I brought my Solanum pyracanthoninside for the winter recently, and it decided to start blooming like crazy.. I love this plant and hope to keep it alive until next spring when it can go back outside..
Oooo that's pretty cool, is the fruit edible? Or just eye candy?
just eyecandy, a lot of fruit in the tomato family is poisonous if I recall correctly. Nightshade and Datura are in the same family if I'm not mistaken. I used to have one but it outgrew my space so gave it away.

Its basically a tropical tomato, same kinda care. Its from Madagascar so just cant handle our winters.. And I think I read the fruit is edible, but very bitter. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/132477/
Knew about nightshade, that must explain the "of Doom" part since "thorny" was already accounted for lolz.
Now having seen Bries reply I wonderz if it could be cooked to cut the bitterness or used for the bitter in a dish
looks like it's been doing really well since you got it. That things is awesome..
