Monstera deliciosa

Aka Swiss Cheese plant from my youth spent in chilly England; these were house plants. It was not until I moved to Sydney that I first saw them flower and develop fruit that smelled like pineapple. You can see part of a fruit ripening in the top left of the picture. 

According to Wikipedia,

Monstera deliciosa is a species of flowering plant native to tropical rainforests of southern Mexico, south to Panama.
