our potatoes were growing well, we have weird looking fruits that are forming too, where the flowers were. They look like tomatoes, but have no seeds inside, and are still green. no rogue tomato plants in there, they taste like raw potatoes. see these pics :

thanks Jack. Never even heard of this before.
Potatoes are the same family as tomatoes Nightshade or Solanum to give the proper name...don't eat them
-- answer removed --
These little fruits may look like tomatoes but they're poisonous so don't eat them. Remove them and dispose of them.
