Two of the sweet cactus pears


We just noticed in one of our city groceries “a pear like fruit” on the shelf. The size and shape look like the same with a green pear at glance.


It is called a Prickly Cactus Pear or a sweet cactus pear, with scientific name is Oppuntia engelmanni.


The Prickly Cactus Pears are found a lot in the country or regions of:

- Mexico

- USA

- Africa

- Mediterranean areas

- West Indies (the Caribbean islands)

- other regions of arid and semiarid


Some countries grow the fruit for commercial purposes, as an important income source of farmers.

- raspberry


It is said that the cactus pear is a healthy fruit. Its contains:

- antioxidants

- fiber

- carotenoids.


Finally, do You Know and have tasted a Prickly Cactus Pear?
