    The nightshade family is the solanaceae (Latin for sun-like) and includes 5 subfamilies, over 60 genera, and more than 300 species–in other words, it’s a very big family.  Among these, the potato (solanum), tomato, (solanum lycopersicum), eggplant or aubergine (solanum melongena), and chilli pepers (genus capsicuum) are some of the more common food members.  The specific deadly nightshade genus is the atropa (Greek for one of the three fates that cut off the thread of life) contains no edible species.
