Despite its common name of creeping false holly, this plant does not have a creeping habit: it produces upright to somewhat sprawling, 2- to 4-foot-tall stems. And, it has no close relation to the shrub better known as false holly (Osmanthus): Jaltomata procumbens is in the same botanical family as potatoes and tomatoes. The name confusion aside, creeping false holly is worth considering if you enjoy growing unusual edibles, for its somewhat sweet, seedy, blueberry-sized fruits, which are edible raw or cooked when mature (glossy purple-black). Grow it in containers or in the ground. Full sun. Annual. May self-sow.
Collected in August 2022. At least 15 seeds.
