"Solanum mucronatum" (sometimes called "pepino", which usually refers to S. muricatum) is a flowering plant species in the nightshade family (Solanaceae). It probably belongs to those species formerly in Solanum but nowadays placed in Lycianthes, though its exact identity and name remain undetermined.[1]

It is an annual shrub that is sometimes grown as an ornamental plant[verification needed]. It is also endangered due to habitat loss[verification needed].
