What is the plant?

This plant appeared in my vegetable patch. I presume it has grown from a seed from the seeds fed to the birds over winter. It has a cucumber like flower and similar leaves, it has a prickly fruit which when cut has seeds in quarters.




Datura or brugsmansia, angels trumpet.

Many people on GoY have had this appear

Both that i mentioned as they look similar are highly poisonous, leaves seeds and sap etc.
An annual normally spread by bird droppings

we had a lady on the news in our area had a huge one appear in her garden
you need to dispose of very carefully
use gloves at all times
do not put in your composter, I dont think you should burn it either as the fumes would be toxic too!!
