I was at the grocery store today and noticed this odd fruit, I had never tried it before and it looked interesting. I love trying new fruit, especially if it would make great photos!
This is a prickly pear, it grows on a cactus.
My fingers were not very grateful for this fruit.
I looked online on how to even eat it.
I found out that soaking the fruit in water will get rid of the pricklys,
then you can peel it like you would a peach. The skin is slightly more tough than a peach.
There is a layer of skin and the fruit is soft like a peach but there are seeds in it.
The taste is similar to pomegranate and berries.
My favorite & oh so pretty!
