Invasive Assessment | Impact Assessment

Scientific name:Solanum pseudocapsicum L

Common Name:

Madeira winter cherry, Jerusalem cherry


The plant has been documented to invade damp sclerophyll forest, riparian vegetation and warm temperate forests (Carr
et al, 1992). The species is most invasive in moister conditions (Aliero et al, 2006a) but may have the capacity to establish in drier woodland environments. It has also been found to occur around forest edges (Weber, 2003). It is also known to establish in hedges, plantations and remnant forests (Roy et al, 1998).
