Prickly Pear Fruits (Opuntia ficus-indica)
(Click on title to see more photos) Three different varieties of Prickly Pear (aka Tunas) grown here in San Diego, an orange-ish one, a red-magenta one, and a yellow one. All very drought tolerant and produce excellent fruit if you like Prickly Pear. Ripen during summer. The yellow one is 'Quillota' from the Luther Burbank Farm, which I acquired by mail order. The other two are from original plants in the BayPark neighborhood.
