OTHER INTERESTING INFO....

Prickly Pear Cactus is known for its ability to lower blood sugar levels, helping with diabetes. Prickly Pear Cactus is believed to lower blood glucose levels, partly due to its coating of the gastrointestinal tract.
Also is used as a hangover inhibiter. TEQUILA!
Prickly Pear Cactus is also good for the digestive system, loaded with Vitamins B1 and B6 and Calcium.
Prickly Pear Cactus, is a large cactus from the desert southwest. It grows up to 15 feet, and produces hundreds of reddish fruits. The entire plant can be eaten ... once you pluck the spines!.
When handling prickly pear-use tongs! ... if cooking run them over an open flame on stove first, This burns off the fine spines. Or peel like a potato... but why waste them!
To root cuttings bury half the pad sections in soil or just lay flat on the ground and sprinkle a little soil on top and sides leaving one face exposed.
>From seed just cover with 1/4" of soil and mist lightly - DO NOT SOAK
Or cut pad in 3-4" pieces and root cut-sides up for multiple plants.
Water cuttings once a week in dry areas and let dry put completely for the first few months. After the first summer, cacti should survive on rainfall.
Water during prolonged droughts to promote plant growth.
Prickly Pear Cactus is said to be effective if taken prior to drinking alcohol in preventing hangover. Prickly Pear Cactus is said to be effective in treating gastrointestinal infections, strengthening the tissues of the digestive tract, and in lowering cholesterol.
Juice or split pad section also useful topically in the healing of minor scrapes and burns.... also seems to work getting the furry stickers out too! Used similar to agave.
The fruit is used to produce preserves, jelly, pies, candy, syrup, sorbet, drinks, and wine....
The pads are used in many recipes and sold in stores out here as Nopalitos. The fruits (pears) are known as 'Tuna'..
Nopalitos pads are good raw shredded in salads or mixed in salsas or cooked with eggs, served as vegetable or eaten raw.

There's no end to uses! See a great site for recipes http://www.produceoasis.com/Items_folder/Fruits/PricklyPear.html many more just search "Prickly Pear Recipes" on net.


Full Sun Exposure
