Black nightshade plants vary greatly in form and color.
Seed leaves of black nightshade are elongate-oval and pointed; the first true leaves are
spade-shaped with smooth edges.
Lower surfaces are often purple. Berries turn from

only a small part of the fruit surface. Petioles, stems, and leaves have some hairs but are not densely hairy or sticky.
