Among the various plants that have been placed under cultivation in the Medicinal and Poisonous Plant Investigations Gardens of the South Dakota state College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts School of Pharmacy, has been that of Nicandra Physalodes (L) Pers., commonly known as the Apple of Peru. This plant has been under cultivation in the gardens since 1918, the seed having been received from Professor E. L. Newcomb, Director of the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy Drug Gardens, in the Fall of 1917. Professor Newcomb reports that the seed had been purchased from Haage and Schmidt, Erfurt, Germany, in 1914. The writer has undertaken a morphological and chemical study of the plant in question, on account of his interest in the Solanaceae, especially in regard to the peculiar group of alkaloids that are present in a number of plants in this family.
