Can anyone ID this plant that spontaneously grew in one of the pots on my terrace? I'm in Spain, if tht helps.

It reminds me of a nightshade plant, like an eggplant or potato plant. Is it possible some seeds from a dip got into your pot? I once got tomato plant volunteers in my flower bed due to someone dumping some salsa in it.

Best answer: Seconding that it's a Solanum. Maybe it's a Nicandra physalodes, aka Apple of Peru or shoo-fly plant. It's native to Peru, but grows as a weed in other places, for example here in Southern Germany.

Response by poster: Thanks guys. It's an Apple of Peru.
