Solanum virginianum, also called Surattense nightshade, yellow-fruit nightshade, yellow-berried nightshade, Thai green eggplant, Thai striped eggplant (from the unripe fruit), is also known as Indian night shade or yellow berried night shade plant. An erect or creeping herbaceous perennial plant that sometimes becomes woody at the base; it can grow 50 - 70cm tall. The plant is copiously armed with sturdy, needle-like prickles and is harvested from the wild for local use as a food and medicine. The fruits are harvested for commercial extraction of solasodine, which is used in the synthesis of hormones.
Although providing many well-known foods for people, including the potato, tomato, pepper and aubergine, most plants in the family Solanaceae also contain poisonous alkaloids. Although it is also a medicinal plant used mostly in India, some parts of the plant are poisonous, and so unwise to ingest.
