Hi, can anyone ID this plant please? It sprouted this spring, has velvety/ bristley hairs all over it. I have a feeling it came from a small white tuber, I planted last year... but I could be wrong.

Looks like so kind of Begoins by its furry leaves, but may be wrong

Thanks for replying. I've checked Begonias, but nothing looks similar, It's too tall. I reckon it's gonna get a lot taller next year.

Having said that, it could be one of the thick-stemmed types, they grow pretty tall.

Looks like an Actinidia to me.

I vote with Fractal. Maybe you planted a Kiwi fruit seed?
