Those I pick with my Leatherman usually. I'm not very good at describing taste. They are sweet, The outer skin gets leathery after they are on the plant awhile but still very edible. Unlike most fruits these are good on the plant for more than a month before they start to shrivel. They have tiny seeds inside. They taste good enough so I eat them whenever I see them.Ooh, what does the fruit on that cactus taste like? It looks good. I imagine a good pair of gloves would be needed for picking the fruit.
They are red inside with very tiny black seeds. I really like them though I have never found any near our current house.They remind me of red bell peppers on the outside. I'm curious as to what they look like inside. I'm googling pics but only finding barrel cactus fruit cut open.
