    Looks like a type of kangaroo apple species in the Solanum genus. There is some confusion between S. aviculare (kangaroo apple) and S. aciniatum Aiton (large-flowered kangaroo apple). I’m not an expert of this genus to be certain which species yours is. These included link will help you further. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solanum_aviculare
