Soanum capsicoides (Devils apple)

    112 responses

Sort:
Ruth starts with ...
I am searching for a rootstock or cutting of a Solanum Capsicoides also known as Devil's Apple and as Cockroach Berry.

I read in an old Gardening Australia magazine, that we can create our own eggplant tree, by grafting an eggplant scion into a solanum capsicoides rootstock.
I am having difficulty in locating a solanum capsicoides plant and I will appreciate if you can help me to find one.

If you have any tobacco bush growing on your place you can do the same with this, for the standard weeping egg plant. Both the tobacco bush and the Devil's Apple are environmental weeds.

They are growing by the roadside everywhere up here although the fruit/seeds aren't ripe yet. Give them a few month and you can have as many as you like.

Wow, so this is edible too, I digged up this tree in my back yard, but part of the root system went over to my neighbor side, it is still kept popping up to my side now and again.

No, don't eat this one. Only use it as a rootstock if you want to live to see your eggplant bear fruit.

Hi Myllika, No I haven't got any of those plants, but here in NSW we have the kangaroo apple which is also a solanos family and I was given a few plants, so i am going to try with them. Kangaroo apple fruit is used as an abortive by the aboriginees, and I was concerned if the fruit of an eggplant grafted into a kangaroo apple would also be an abortive. Now as you can see from Phil's reply, a poisonous fruit plant can be used as rootstock.

Hi Ruth also Phil as I am not in the East coast area can either of you explain these plants and how high they are I think it looks like the Kampurara ( bush tomatoe/raisin) that grows in the north of SA but that is a small knee high plant, as for the kangartoo apple do you have a photo/discription of it I have some Indigenous plants in my yard I think it is of the solanum family certainly looks like

The kangaroo apple is also a large shrub, I don't know if it has been used as a rootstock though. You can tell it apart as the leaves are shaped just like a kangaroo's footprint if you hold it against the palm of your hand. The bush tomato is also a semi-arid plant indigenous to Australia, and a member of the solanaceae family

Ruth

the 1st picture posted up by Phil, that was the 2 plants I had in my backyard, but I've chopped them both down already, but both of them still have roots left behind as it creeped over to the neighbor side. So now and again it would spring up back over to my side of the land.
If that is the plant you need, then perhaps I might be able to help you out, next one coming back up I'll save it for you. Email me on emmanuel19972000@yahoo.com

ok, there is no real reason it shouldn't work with a kangaroo apple.
I read about an American couple who grafted their tomato plants onto Datura (Angels Trumpet, Brugmansia) and grew poisoned tomatoes - the solanacea family is full of surprises. It includes some very useful plants such as potatoes, pepinos, capsicums and the like but can be deadly if you misidentify anything. Take care.

Hi Phil, do you know if the fruits of an eggplant grafted on a kangaroo apple rootstock will also carry the abortive property of the kangaroo apple. I am concerned about it as my daughters are vegetarians and both love eggplants and I wouldn't like to feed them something that may be abortive.I bought a tamarillo tree and I may try on that but it may not be as hardy as a native.

Hi Ruth,

I have it on good authority from horticultural trained woman that the kangaroo apple will not be harmful or toxic to the eggplant as you are only using it as a root stock - so it is perfectly harmless and ok to use . I am going to give it a go.
Cheers Myllika

Hi Paul, Please clarify if your devil's apple plants are different to the Wild Tobacco Tree (solanum mauritianum)? I am a bit confused as the wild tobacco tree looks identical to the devil's apple plant shown in the picture that Phil posted earlier.
The Wild Tobacco plants I got, have small little leaves at the base of the stem of the big leaves and if I crush the leaves they smell like oil (petrol oil).
Please confirm your Devil's Apple seed come from a plant that is different to the Wild Tobacco Tree and maybe you can point to the diference between these two plants.
Thanks, Ruth

Thanks for your reply

Does the plant look anything like this?

I was hoping to graft eggplants onto it. I have tried growing cockroach berry from seed but cant get anything to sprout.

The plant I intend to use is, I think, Solanum chrysotrichum or the Giant Devil's fig. It is superficially simialr to S. torvum or the Thai pea eggplant but I'm not so sure the fruit are edible. It appears promising as a rootstock however.

There is an old wives tale, about Kangaroo Apples & its this:- If you feed a clucky chook some K A fruit she will hatch predominately pullets against roosters!
Well I tried it once with a Silkie hen
Result 15 pullets
3 roosters
Now is that sheer luck or what??
BTW they were all her own eggs!!

Hey snottie, now that's something worth trying. Unfortunately I usually only know one of them has gone broody when they reappear with family in tow (they free range in several acres with lots of bushes and bracken!)

Yes indeed snottie I think we are the fox headquarters BUT we have about 30 acres enclosed with an 8 ft high electrified fence because we have a lot of small native animals (potorooos, betongs etc)and I stole about 4 for my garden and poultry. Twice in 8 years we have had a fox breach the fence and the result has not been pretty.
If poultry on this consistently produced more pullets you would think it must have some sort of hormonal content.

Do the Giant Devil's fig look like a good root stock? Do they have thorns like the Cockroach berry?

I had initially tried S. mauritianum (wild tobacco) without much success, but it is a quicker growing plant so thought it might be useful but for some reason the grafts didn't take.. I think that S. chrysotrichum is more closely related to eggplants and the like so even though my plants are still small I think I'll persevere with this species. I plan to wait until they are four or five feet tall before I graft, so might be a little way off yet.

Hi, here is a link about the closely related Solanum to eggplant
http://www.plantnames.unimelb.edu.au/new/Sorting/CATALOGUE/Pt4-Nightshades.html
Solanum is a very big genus, so some aren't as closely related as others.
Grafting may go better with more closely related species?
Pea eggplant, devils fig and wild tobacco aren't in this link. but I have "heard" of pe and wt being used as rootstock. Never actually seen it.
Devils fig can get very large,3 or 4m tall, pe and wt about 2m?
S.capsicoides that I saw was a creeping shrub, smaller than most eggplants, not sure if it would be as useful as an eggplant "tree" rootstock?

Gus, Giant Devil's Fig is very thorny- the thorns are like those on a rose but much larger and tightly packed together. The plant is also a very fast grower, and the seeds seem to remain viable in the ground for some time - we've been trying to eradicate it for over 2 yrs, and seedlings are still popping up. I'd be wary of using it. As above, the original plants were about 4m tall.

Interesting info.
I find that eggplant article missing a little bit of information at time. It sounds that even the authorities have trouble defining the different species. It is not easy to find direct information about grafting eggplant on to solanum other than this article I found
http://deepgreenpermaculture.com/diy-instructions/grafting-eggplant-onto-devil-plant/

I thought this is what the solanum Cap looks like? It looked a nice sturdy tree to act as a rootstock, but I have no luck getting the seeds to sprout anyway. I haven't had any luck getting the torvums to sprout either but I may try again with them. Have any of you seen a torvum growing? Do they look more suitable as rootstock?

In the grafting article, the plant is giant devils fig, but not S.capsicoides.
Pea egplant S.torvum, is similar to GDF, but much smaller, still gets to 2m tall.

Huh? What? Trikus? Did I miss something? Where?

Anywho, the commercial guys use the wild tobacco S. mauritianum for Tamarillows. I have some eggplant grafts happening on one as we speak, it's a bit late in the season but after 4 weeks, it's still holding.
If you don't live in an area that has a ban on S. Torvum, I'm happy to send you some seedlings, I have far more than I can ever use.

I don't know if it is around here or not but I am sure they are probably being used as rootstock all over the city. I just can't seem to find any!
I assume if they are kept strictly to pots and grafted before fruiting they probably aren't a great threat?

Gus they are mainly weeds of NSW subtropics, and S.torvum more up in central QLD. May not be common in WA???
S.torvum is cultivated for the "pea" eggplants, fruit may be avail at Vietnamese groceries.

I also have real tobacco seeds (shh) if u want some - what is "wild tobaco"...? (pic needed) as there is a weedy wild tobacco plant up here too...

gus's pic above is wild tobacco. Smoking tobacco, S. Nicotinium or something along those lines has larger lighter green leaves. I haven't heard of anyone using S. Nicotinium for rootstocks.
I'd try and source S Mauritianum or S. Torvum (pea eggplant)from over there for rootstock purposes..

Thanks for the spelling check jakfruitetiquette, my tobbaco plant, S. Nicotiana have pink flowers, same usual brown pods. I don't know if the colour of the flowers differentiates cultivars or not? I've read that the Virginian CV has the pink flowers, other may have as well, I'm not sure on that one. Further research will tell.

I have a great strain of Nicotiana alata growing here, great mix of colors. I was sent a free pkt of seeds by accident when I ordered something else from the UK, now I think I have them for life, they come up every year (pictured behind friend with bananas).

! I do not remember posting in this thread , may have made a comment on another one about Ron Berry grafting onto the weed sp. that grows all over the place up here . Seems there are several very similar looking spp. and if some are toxic care needs to be taken .

John Mc, I forgot about the pink flowers on the Nicotiana tabacum types, thanks.
Some ornamental Nicotiana have petunia type coloured flowers.

I was hoping someone else might know what they are too gus...? :)

The genus names fine - it's the species names that are the problem.

If I had the time I could try to test them myself..but...I don't.

I might get these tobacco seeds up and running in the meantime. I don't smoke it and I wouldn't sell - so how bad can it get really...(roll's eyes)

The tobacco is Nicotiana glauca, not Aus native. Ethnobotanically, it contains anabasine,not nicotine, so supposedly less toxic.
The Solanum, looks like S.lasiophyllum"flannel bush", but I would check in case there are very similar relatives??

Thanks jakfruitetiquette - that's really interesting also as I was wondering about making an infusion of the leaves of the Nico' plant as "natural" poison to pour down the bull ant nests....?

Just needed to know which plant is was. Someone mentioned neo-nicotinoides as pesticides in another thread acutally (I think john/kert and Mike discussed them)
Interesting stuff.
(apparantly u have to be really careful of the Solanums around here - as we also have the authentic "bush tomatoe" one as well...and they all look remarkably similar to my untrained eye...

Perhaps it is just my lack of experience, but I am surprised how hard it is for them to take

I have tried to do a few more but they have not really survived either. I have generally cut a slice down the root stock, neatly cut a V shape on the scion and wrapped it all together with grafting tape. Whether to put a plastic bag over it or not is still up in the air for me, but I have tried lots of different ways with no success.
the scion always seems to die, even if it is in shade.

A one off post as trying to find poison ratios for the Giant Devils Fig. Bad bad weed. It has come to northern nsw. And i note one person said this and the tobbacco tree are noxious weeds and take care. They should be totally destroyed. (The Giant Devils Fig, fast growing, tall, single trunk, totally thorn covered, giant leaved plant i see one photo of in this site, has red medium size tomato looking fruit filled with seed). I read a year ago a plant was noted for the first time in Terrania creek forrest 18 months before. As the crow flies id be about 15km away. I first saw this plant under the small mango orchard, close to a cabin i rent on a cattle farm, about 18mths ago. Birds and fruit bats also feast on a large native fruit bearing tree in the cattle race hear. Ok this regions weather is the best in the country for weeds to easily get out of contol but a recent scan count added to about FOUR HUNDRED closely compact seedlings in the cattle race alone. Currently not quite that density under the mangos. This plant has rendered tracts of agricultural land inaccesible in sections of asia somewhere. Possibly in poor areas where poison is not financially possible. I hope passionate gardners will think and research a little deeper than the novelty of a trendy plant, however it is accessed, to have or play with.

We must be careful with plants with weed potential.My area and many parts of northern Australia have the massive weed infestations mostly due to imported cattle pasture and fodder plants that are out of control and rogue seeds that get imported with them.Many can't even be declared as weeds due to cows eating them.
The wet tropics also has many horticultural species that have gone feral and it is a lesson for other area.This Solanum appears to be one such have species although is only sporadic in my area as a feral.

Weeds are a complex issue, the worst are the rare types that can invade intact ecosystems, but many are opportunistic on disturbed areas, roadsides, nutrient and water runoff, which is the real problem.
re Solanum capsicoides I dont recall it being a very large plant, so no more vigorous than eggplant + capsicum, wondering if it is such a great rootstock choice? Pea eggplant is maybe better ?

There are no such things as weeds. The term is a s sociological one, it isn't something anchored in scientific reality. Somebody's weed is someone else's plant.

Take a trip to provincial France and you won't go ten steps without seeing a well manicured and pampered lantana bush.

I was surprised and had not expected this. I have only seen it on YouTube and this is my 3th attempt. Yes a cleft graft and about 8 cms scion making sure that it has more then one eye,the scion is smaller then the host and I lined up one side only. Herewith another photo of the first one to take, it is now 25 cms long and has two set of flowers coming on, very exited

take care

My first attempts died, with the next grafts I make sure that the graft was just above small side branch that would pull up the nutrients so that the graft had access to this and I latter trimmed theses off or down, depending how well it took, perhaps that is the secret - hope this makes sense to you.

good luck

The 3 years earlier the Main (now 1.8mt in Pot) plant survived winter ok outside but the Bonica didnt survive so last year did Striped and purple lebanese and they both survived winter but dark Leb moreso and kicks earliest in spring too.

My project for next summer is to graft several eggplant varieties to a Tamarillo out front im getting tired of eating - will keep everyone posted on this experiment in 10 months?

u can ask any greek or italian gardeners

Many many thanks to you and all for giving me so many great ideas
