Glossy Nightshade (Solanum americanum), not to be confused with Deadly Nightshade (Atropa belladonna), is found in the tropical & subtropical regions of “Australia”, the “Americas”, New Guinea & Melanesia but it’s native origins are unknown. It tends to show up as a weed growing in ground impacted by humans.
The ripe black berries & foliage are poisonous when eaten & can cause gastrointestinal stress. The unripe green berries can even kill children & pets. All nightshades have a level of toxicity that affect people differently (don’t like tomatoes or eggplants? This could be the reason). In Ayurvedic traditions the ripe berries have been used to treat skin inflammation such as psoriasis & eczema. Always test first for an allergic reaction by rubbing a small amount on the wrist then inner elbow, if these spots become red or itchy cease use
