It is difficult to tell Solanum chenopodioides from S. nigrum and S. nodiflorum. However, the stalk of the fruit does not appear to be sharply deflexed, as it is in chenopodioides, and the berry looks as if it is going to be dull rather than glossy, so I am inclined to think it is nigrum.

Leaves look like S. chenopodioides, longer and unlobed. I will try to get back and get better photos.
