Desert weed, with fruit. I was raised in Texas and never got close enough to a prickly pear to notice that it had edible fruit. That would have been like eating the beans off a mesquite tree. (That’s probably next week’s vegetable.) Anyway, I just cut up the prickly pear fruit and ate it. I was unimpressed. You try it and tell me what you think.
