Prickly Pear

The allure of this exotic fruit is magical, yet dangerous! Its mystique comes from its naturally vibrant fuchsia color of its pulp. But beware - being from the cactus family, its skin pricks. Prickly Pears are the fruit that grow on top of the flat cactus pad; when peeled the pulp has a delicate melon-fig taste.
