Hi, I’m in Vietnam and this plant popped up in my garden, but unsure if it’s a weed or useful. It’s about 1 metre high, with green berries, that seem to be turning a very dark purple. I broke one of the berries open, and they are full of seeds, with a liquid surrounding them. The berries grow from small white flowers, in bunches of 3 or 4. I live on the 9 floor of an apartment building, so no birds to carry seeds, and as of yet it is possibly my first weed.
