Jenny took this photo. I have never seen this before, only yellow flowers and deep red fruit. I have googled lots of sites but cannot find an image like this, anyone seen it on other cacti? I have two prickers in my hand right now, leave them to get infected then they come out on their own. The red fruit is edible and tastes good, but you have to wipe off hundreds of miniscule blond prickers first wearing gloves.

Hi Ank, thanks I got it.

You're welcome Francine, this is baffling me, no-one seems to have seen this particular flower and we cannot find another one like it. Thanks.

Hi Robbie; great photo. It was fun reading all the comments and learning about this flower/fruit. [have never seen nor tasted one]. Thanks to you and your Jenny.

Thanks, Hanne; that was a fantastic video.

Didn't know prickly pears were from the cactus family; lovely photo, Jenny.

pilley

For prickly pear cactus around here, you put them on a stick and hold over a fire and burn off all the prickly's then peal and eat. Great great photo, thanks.

gemstone

Great video, Hanne...I'm going to forward it to friends.

snooker

Elfie

What a picture!! Jenny is really good!! What a beauty, a pleasure to see!! Thanks so very much Robbie!!

We get pricklly pears here in the shops already with no prickers, all you have to do is peel them.
Keep them in the fridge. They are delicious ,juicy and sweet. I have never seen them growing, and this picture is beautiful. Thanks Robbie!!

mhughes69

I just LOVE tropical flowers! Never seen this one before either, it's quite beautiful! Thanks Robbie and thank Jenny for us for taking such lovely pic's!

robryan

Nice flower Robbie - but I can't imagine the Prickly Pears having much taste!!

Plumpossum

I think the edible "leaves" are called nopalitos. All the Mexican groceries have them.

photogent

They make a great jelly out of the fruit mate. You can peal the leaves and fry them and they are good to eat.

pkin38

Very pretty Robbie....

KARLS

WE HAVE PRICKLY PEAR AROUND HERE, NOT THAT I HAVE SEEN THIS FLOWER, BUT THE FRUIT IS MADE INTO GOURMET JAMS. AND YES YOU NEED GLOVES TO WIPE OFF THE PRICKLES.

pumpkinhead

Oh, geeze. You allowed yourself to get pricked? Soak the prick(ers) in warm water, then tape 'em (like Tex said). Maybe if you eat the fruit it will help your system fight off the nasties from the prickers???

texasstar7

Chosen One, you're a riot! We have those underground here in Texas too! I live in a land with mucho cacti, and have never seen any that aren't yellow. Also, Robbie, you may have already tried, this, but you can sometimes get the stickers out with a piece of tape. Nice photo & puzzle. Thanks.

jacquescamus

never seen this before Robbie, this is a beautiful picture!

gemstone

While I've never tried it, I've heard that if you use a dab of gel-type facial mask on a sliver/prickle, and wait for it to dry that you can gently pull out the sliver without breaking it off.

lelabugosi

We have these in Bonga-Bonga........but they grow underground..........we call them radishes.......

PLG1958

Wow, it's beautiful!

CelesteH

Giggles at Lyndee. I wouldnt know either..
Great shot there Jenny.
Robbie? what does it taste like. Hope its good considering the work you got to do to get to it. :)

I have never seen these. It's really beautiful, but I think I'd rather just enjoy looking at it than trying to eat it.
