Cactus apples, eaten in Mexico
Red or purple fruits growing on beavertail cactus plants need to be removed very carefully. They are then rolled around in the sand and skinned with a sharp knife. The purple ones taste like cranberry while the red taste like pears. Be warned not to eat more than three at a time for fear of constipation.
Actually, the prickly pear fruit is called a “Cactus Pear” among other names, and the “Cactus Apple” refers to the fruit of the Cereus Peruvianus, not to get all pedantic on your a**.
