Description

Solanum malmeanum (malmeanum, presumably in honor of Swedish botanist Oskar Andersson Gustaf Malme) is a Brazilian wild potato.  Very little has been written about this species.

Cultivation

I have found this species difficult to germinate.  It might require conditions different than the standard for S. tuberosum.
