I was busy looking at the plant wondering which Solanum/Nightshade this was and only took two photos. Didn't even notice the fruit or the creature atop it. Have never seen one like this.
I tip my hat to you.

At first glimpse it does resemble a type of cricket.

It's a beetle, a type of weevil but it's difficult to say which.

Bugguide only has the one species in the genus listed, is there any pines nearby?

There are several types of pine nearby. Canary island pines for one and the others I don't know. It was about 500 feet from the nearest one.
