Yes, it does sound like a Monstera. The ones I have seen bearing fruit 
in California have been in very protected locations (under the eves) 
outside, planted in the ground...always near the coast in 
nearly-frost-free locations. 

Before you try to eat your fruit, do read up on how to gauge ripeness. I 
understand they ripen one segment at a time...and you definately do NOT 
want to try and eat an unripe piece.
