Cyphomandra hartwegi.

Botanical name:

Cyphomandra hartwegi Sendt. Solanaceae.

New Granada. The berry is reddish, about the size of a pigeon's egg and is two-celled. It appears to be the fruit sold in the markets of Lima, where it is commonly used for cooking in lieu of the ordinary tomato, the flavor of which it resembles. Tweddie says it is used in Buenos Aires.


Sturtevant's Edible Plants of the World, 1919, was edited by U. P. Hedrick.
