cactus fig

thorny on the outside, sweet and magical on the inside

This juicy fruit comes from the Nopal cactus, which grows in hot areas

and arid. 

The fig is mostly water (90%). That is why it is known as the vegetable dromedary

that served the sailors to hydrate themselves on their long voyages.

The thick, prickly skin is fluid-filled and protects the meat. (Watch out for the thorns already

which are very thin and stick easily).

The soft, juicy pulp is sweet and has many edible seeds.
