The tree it grows on and its curiosities
Winter cherry tree
Occasionally found cultivated in all tropical and sub-tropical zones of the planet, especially in Central America, the winter cherry is perfectly aclimatised to some southern European countries (France, Spain, Italy, etc.), and even grows wild in some areas, becoming an invasive plant due to the ease with which it disseminates its seed.
