This is my new almost empty veggie patch. Is it a weed? Looks bit like peppercorns....


  • No, not peppercorns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks like Black Nightshade to me - definitely one of the nightshades anyway, Nutcutlet will come along and confirm properly I'm sure - anyway, it's a weed of disturbed ground and definitely toxic so don't grind it on your pasta!!! image

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Yes I think a nightshade also, it's toxic don't ingest It.

  • Lots of edible versions but can't be sure so don't fancy the acid style trip, stomach ache or death. So I'll dig it up with gloves on a take it with hedge trimmings to tip...


    thanks guys.
