: My parents' potatoe vines have small tomatoe-like clusters growing on them! We have never seen anything like it, and yes, they are really growing on the potatoe vines.. Does anyone know what causes this?
Are they growing near the top of the potato plant? If so, I had this once too. It was because I planted them too close together (potato and tomato). They will cross-polinate. My understanding is that this "fruit" that is growing on the potato could potentially be poisonous also.
