At first I thought this was a strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo), but I think it's an annual since it is currently dead.
And the strawberry tree has smaller fruit. Any thoughts?

Seems to be that.
Datura stramonium

edit: the leaves are different than Stramonium....
edit: Seems to be "Datura Inoxia" or "Datura Metel"

Nothing much in terms of usefulness, unless I want to be in an altered state for 3 days, communicating with the spirit world and hoping not to die, which I don't. I'll leave these for the neighbors to cultivate.

Simply by looking at the leaves, stem and color. I know that it is in the nightshade family so please dont eat it.
If it seems like they are talking over get rid of most of them.
 
Do the next thing next. That's a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that's a pretty good rule, too.
