Default Any identification possible?

This plant was "rescued" from an empty lot and the flower has emerged about 11ft from the ground. Locally it is called a Rulo and the fruit is short and almost rectangular, and eaten when very ripe, freckled and soft.

Apart from the bud there is no pink or red on the plant at all. Sorry for the out of focus pictures and I will get the tall ladder out later for some better shots. If anyone can help with some identification - that would be appreciated.
