Vine

Solanaceae Family

Solanum Genus

Location

Seems like it grows in more shaded areas that have East sun.

Physical Description
This vine has purple flowers with yellow centers that turn into green berries. The green berries turn yellow, then orange, then red as they ripen. I think it's part of the night shade family but I'm not sure. When cut or broken the vine weeps that milky looking sap/substance. Do you know what it is? I think it's poisonous. Haven't tested that!

The berries look like tiny tomatos. Solanum dulcamara means "Sun-shade sweet-bitter" Solanum dulcamara is poisonous to humans and livestock but edible for birds, which disperse the see
