unusual fruits and vegetables

For some reason, my local grocery stores carry a few very odd items:

-Yucca root
-Cactus pear
-Persimmon
-Quince

Yes, I'm googling for more information, but I'd also like to know your favorite culinary uses for these things ^_^

Also, since it's close to Thanksgiving, a lot of places are clearing out squash. You know the big ones that look sort of like geese, with a long "neck" and a large oval "body" at one end? They're all labeled as decoration, but sold in bins with the acorn and butternut squash. Can you eat those?
