I have this very odd and a loner weed/plant that stands about 10 inches high and has 4-5 yellow-orange berries on it. The stem has very fine thorns - actually covered in thorns. What is it? Thanks.

It could also be S. incanum based on the trunks of the plant.

It's Solanum carolinense.

Solanum incanum is not native and does not occur here.
