Prickly pear fruit
A very helpful fellow customer explained that you pick them up with tongs. To prepare, swish in a bucket of water (to allow the prickles to bang against each other and thus be neutralised, I think). Then, wearing rubber gloves, slit once and peel. They taste somewhat like a mango, she said.
There were so many gorgeous colours in the fruit shop. I have a set of photos in my Flickr photostream if you want to see more. Click on the Flickr icon on the right to go there or click here to go directly to the fruit & veg set.
