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.
