Answer: The plant is Cyphomandra, a tropical plant that grows about 10 feet tall. It will bear tomato-looking fruit, which is edible, but they won't taste anything like real tomatoes. The fruit can be eaten fresh, but are usually stewed and made into jelly. This plant is more of a curiosity than anything else, and you'll probably be disappointed in the quality of the crop. But, it might be fun to have, just because it's different.
