    According to Tammy Blume, Greenhouse Manager at the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens, you have a Solanum mammosum. Very interesting, thorny, and not edible. See http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?taxonid=287157&isprofile=0&

    it’s in the Solanum family (tomato, eggplant, etc) but there are dozens of species so I don’t know which one this is. Why not call the Bot Gdn and ask and let me know?
