i have read that most cactus originated in the Americas, weather that's true or not i don't know. the opuntias that i'm familiar with were the yellow blossomed ones. i first came across them as vegetables in the eighties when i lived in Texas. but, i think the opuntias are all over the south and, now Italy

Sounds like a delicious treat, t53de711! Do you know whether the yellow-flowered one shown in two of my others puzzles (growing in my neighborhood in VA) is the same kind of cactus? Do you by chance know if the one shown in the painting for this puzzle would have been taken from the southwest US to Italy, or are they native to Italy?

these are opuntia, the fruits are edible, and the leaves are , too. out in the west they are sometimes used as cattle fodder. you can eat the pads. you scrape the thorns off first, cut them in strips and fry or steam them. tastes rather like asparagus (to me)
