Prickly Pear
  • Description

    It should be immediately clear that cactus pears or prickly pears are not actually pears, but rather the juicy berries of a cactus. They boast flavor that's like a sunny little watermelon on an equatorial vacation. Carefully peel before eating and feel free to either eat the seeds or spit them out. This fruit is most popular in jellies, butters and vinaigrettes, but we think they're simply fantastic sliced and served in grilled beef salads beside wide glasses brimming with prickly pear margaritas.
