Photographer's Note

While wandering the Saigon Markets I came across this amazing looking fruit/vegetable, but couldn't get anyone to tell me the name.
It is about 150mm / 6" across, and covered in spines.
Can anyone help me with a name and what it is used for, please?? There was only one stall with them, but they were not selling fast.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
