this may be Solanum laciniatum or a similar species. Sometimes it is used as rootstock for tamarillo (cyphomandra species) and it is considered safe as it doesnt pass on toxic substances to the fruit as some other rootstocks are known to sometimes do. I have eaten small quantities of the ripe fruit as shown in the picture. However they are not much good tasting

It looks like one of the Kangaroo Apple species, Solanum aviculare or similar. Large fruit though, there are a number of variants in this group.
