Does anyone have any idea what this might be? Came across it growing beside a neighbor's house while out getting some fresh air. And has anyone ever grown it from seed / used it for bonsai? 20210830_155802.jpg20210830_155757.jpg20210830_155749.jpg As you can see from the last pic it's got some nasty little thorns.

There looks to be a Solanarum-esque flower in there.... maybe that’s not the same plant?.. Hmmm

The Berries look like Lycee or Goji berries...

You said it has thorns?...

Check out WolfBerries.. they are basically Goji berries, if I’m correct. (I just type.. no google first! HAHAHA)

Thankyou for that, it's exactly what they are. I would have never figured it out and it would have bugged me to no end with those odd shaped berries. It must be the lycium barbarum, it's the only one that is hardy enough to survive around here.
