Description
 
Chinese May Apple.  This is an impressive plant - truly one to give the shade garden some visual impact.  Big leaves get up to 18" across with bizarre clusters of red flowers held beneath which are followed by bunches of green cherry tomato-like fruit if you are lucky.  Lucky in the sense that you will have a bunch of seed rather than a culinary delight which is for sure not the case.  Rich moist soil in shade to bits of sun.
