Fruiting and flowering of Solanum violaceae seen at Amboli, Mah. in Sep. '10. Was informed that this species was known earlier by some other name.  Hope id is correct!.

Rashida.

Very sorry for the incorrect spelling throughout my post. It should either be Solanum violaceum or Solanum violacea. 

regards,
Rashida

Rashida ji
Could you kindly indicate the size of ripe fruits. Also where the flowers white or some tinge of blue/violet?

Sir, the fruits were tiny as seen in the pics. I had a very brief look at them should be around 2cm. The flowers petals are light purple as seen in the second pic. 

regards,
Rashida.

Rashida ji
To me it does not look like S. violaceum which has recurved prickles with much broadened base and violet-blue flowers.
For me the closest match seems to be S. capsicoides with straight slender prickles, densely prickly fruiting calyx and orange-red ripe fruits. Let us wait for more inputs.

Rashida Ji , I think you are mistaking the diameter, 2 cms is very
big. If I am not wrong it is around 6 mm and the flowers are purple in
colour. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Regards
Yazdy.

Yazdy ji, yes flowers light purple, fruit 6mm would be too small ! . Perhaps more than 6mm but less  than 2cm - if that is not confusing enough !!

regards,
Rashida.

Thank You Rashida Ji, The only reason I suggested 6 mm, is because , I
have seen such solanum at my place, measured them to be around 6mm to
7 mm. The only difference between the plants that I have seen and your
pictures is the number of spines. So I guess I am wrong.
Regards
Yazdy.

I guess it is matching with  Solanum capsicoides!
Thank you.
