Mystery fruit

Does anyone know what these are? I saw them in Chinatown and they look very interesting although I think I wouldn't know how to eat, peel or cook these Kiwanos?! I think someone needs to help solve the mystery fruit query, maybe Mrs. Lau??

The Kiwano (also known as the Horned Melon, melano, African horned cucumber, jelly melon, hedged gourd, and/or English tomato) is a fruit native to a region of the Kalahari Desert. When picked green and allowed to ripen, the fruit tastes like a mix of cucumber and kiwifruit. When it's picked fully ripe, it has a banana-like taste.
