Description: From one of our seed collections gathered on route to meet up with the Medellin Botanic Garden team, as we were both collecting in the remote area of El Cocuy area of Colombia. When we spotted an aerial rooting climber, on closer inspection we decided that it was a member of the Solanum family. Later confirmed to be a Solanum when I presented the Medellin contingency with one of its small pendant white flowers. The habit of the climber was definitely aerial rooting on the trunk of a small tree, but also capable of scandent growth pushing its slender stems through shrubs for support. Bearing small globose tomato-like orange fruit, as well as alternate thin textured leaves with distinctly impressed venation. On our return to the UK it was confirmed that this was an undiscribed species.
