2. Interesting.

This plant looks similar to the Chinese Lantern (Physalis alkekengi). Growing up in Southwest Missouri, I always thought the whole plant was poisonous. But, apparently, the berry is edible. Cool!

P.S. As a warning, I just found this as well: "The leaves and immature berries are also poisonous, so they should not be grown where they might endanger small children." (http://homeguides.sfgate.com/long-chinese-lantern-flower-bloom-96591.html)
