A soda apple a day does not keep the USDA away

Agricultural officials in Texas have mobilized following the discovery of tropical soda apple (Solanum viarum) on a ranch in the town of Jasper. As reported at Science Daily, a rapid response team made up of workers from the USDA, Texas Cooperative Extension and weed specialists are now studying the situation to determine the best way to contain the invasion of this federally listed noxious weed.

Thanks to a member of the ALIENS-L listserver for posting a link to the story.
