    What is this mystery fruit?

    I've seen this plant a bajillion times, but never the fruit. On the west face of the McDs, a few min below Tom's Thumb. Bunches of them. It was about 85 when i rolled past at 9am, i think about average for this time of year.

    Looks like a banana yucca to me

    indeed consensus is banana yucca. neither my wife nor i had ever seen the fruit before, quite surprised i've not. I brought one home, gonna cook it later. I'm thinking its like a squash so thin slices, pan with oil, should be interesting.
