Wanted: Porcupine Tomato

Hello all! I'm looking for seeds of this creepy and dangerous species of Solanum pyracanthos (porcupine tomato). Regards.

Have you tried growing Lychee Tomato (Solanum sisymbriifolium)? It is also spiny like that and the “tomatoes” are pretty tasty. I think Trade Winds had seeds if you find it interesting.

I have litchi tomato seeds they taste like cherries and tomatoes. Sorry i know its not one youre looking for. But i ashure you its very thorny and nasty. Cold hardy too. Unlike the other.
