What's a pincushion?

According to the wildflower site I use most often, 'desert rodents' eat these pincushion fruits. I know a naturalist (or two) who eats them as well. Not spicy, even though they look like little peppers. Be careful when attempting to harvest them. Daniel, who knows his pincushions, is off to Thailand soon. Happy trails.
