Maguey fruit, we think, on sale at the Tianguis, San Miguel de Allende

We think these rather interesting fruit are Maguey, which is the fruit from the Agave, the big spikey-leaved plant from which tequila and mescal are also made. We bought a couple, and when split they have a very large shiny seed, and soft sweet flesh which tastes rather like some kind of pudding. This vendor rapidly emptied his barrow at the Tianguis, the massive open-air market on tuesdays here in San Miguel.
