A common shrub of disturbed sites throughout much of Florida, Solanum chenopodioides is also native to South America.
This is one of two species of black nightshades native to Florida, the other being S. americanum, or american black nightshade. They can be differentiated by the mature fruit, S. chenopodioides having dull black nodding fruit, while S. americanum has shiny black fruits that are held erect.
