Very large leaves, length in photo 420mm, max width 320mm. Plant approx 600mm high. Leaves alternating on stem, not paired. Never seen before in my life, no similar plants seen in locality – been checking neighbours/gardens.

    Maybe a species in the Solanum genus, possible Solanum laciniatum (Large Kangaroo Apple) (?). Check out these included links for more information.
