Prickly pear cactus
Prickly pears are among the cacti known primarily for their typical growth, formed by flat links growing in several layers above each other. Fruits are formed from yellow flowers and sit on the edge of flat stem segments. They have an oval or pear-shaped shape about the size of a goose egg, resembling figs.
The color of the prickly pear cactus goes from green to red to yellow, the same color has the flesh, which is fragile, sweet and juicy. Their surface is covered with fine thorns, which complicate the collection of fruits.
Today, prickly pears are found in some areas with tropical and subtropical climates as "weeds". Prickly pear species are found in large numbers in Mexico, especially in the central and western countries and in the Caribbean (West Indies).
In the United States, "prickly pears" are native to many areas of the arid western United States, including the lower elevations of the Rocky Mountains, where species such as Opuntia phaeacantha and Opuntia polyacantha become dominant.
Several types are endemic to the southwestern deserts. Prickly pears are also native to the low open areas of the East Coast from Florida to Connecticut / Long Island (Opuntia humifusa).
