This is certainly toyon. What's interesting is that it's native to Southern California and Baja California. It goes to show how much plants are being spread around the world by the nursery trade.

According to information, Birds enjoy the fruit and Indians used to either roast or boil them first before eating them safely. The seeds are the problem.
