It's tuna season again!

No, not the fish! The cactus! Tuna is the Spanish word for prickly pear, or cactus fruit. They come in two colors, red and green, are full of seeds, and taste something like a melon.

They are also covered in spines. But, with the technique you are about to learn, that won't be a problem at all.

These cacti are more nutritious and taste better than I'd ever have
thought. Made a video recently on how to pick and eat them off the
plant. Hope this helps. Enjoy!

If you have a lot of them, they dry very nicely. The ones from the local prickly pear (red) taste a bit like red licorice when dried.

the red ones from Sicily are the best!
Looks good. I always wanted to try one
Oooh! That looks good! Now that I know how to peel it, I'm going to have to see if I can find one to try :D
