Pumpkin Tree?

While shopping at Trader Joes today I succumbed to some Autumn decorations called "Pumpkin Tree Branches". They are so pretty that I had to buy some! The branches are really thick that they do seem like tree branches hence the common name. Research says that this plant is actually an Eggplant from Africa! Solanum integrifolium, is its Latin name is also in the Tomato family. I don't know if I could grow it. Maybe next year.  But Park Seed sells the seeds! Happy Autumn!
