Help me determine if this is edible in some way other than giving it to Ralph Wiggum to taste.

What kind of fruit or vegetable is this? And more important, can I eat it?

As part of my ongoing skunk problem research I was told by multiple sources that, in the absence of porch or basement they're hiding in, there is usually something the skunks on your property are eating. And that's why they keep coming back. With our trash lids closed I started looking for something else they might be nibbling on. And behind our back fence I saw these.
They're growing on the fence itself. They're orange with red fleshy seeds like pomegranates or something. So are these things edible? Is that what the skunks are eating?
And, on a related note, can I eat them as well?
