Caption: Cocona, Solanum cessiliflora, a relative of the tomato, is a popular fruit in some regions of tropical South America. It is usually made into a refreshing juice, or used to flavor ice cream. The wild form has spines on the stems and is native to Colombia, and Venezuela. The domestic, spineless form is widely grown in Peru, Venezuela, Colombia and parts of Brazil. Depending on variety, the fruit can be orange, red, purple or yellow. It was formerly known as Solanum hyporhodium. Photographed growing in Loreto, Peru.
