Have you Tried Cactus Fruit? - Food 44

We just know and quite surprise that the cactus plant has fruit when we visit the Mexican store recently.

I thought the fruit was a pear in terms of form and size. In fact, cactus fruit also called as "a prickly pear."  

The fruits are native to Americas, but many countries around the world have cultivated this kind of cactus.

We believe the "prickly pear" is delicious. Its flesh is sweet and juicy with flavor similar to pear and watermelon. 

The fruit contains nutrients such as vitamin C, fiber, magnesium, potassium and antioxidants.

We may find several colors of fruits that are:
- green
- yellow
- red
- orange
- or purple  


Image 04 - The color is not green.

I think this prickly pear is good option if we want to taste a new and interesting fruit.

Have you known about this fruit?

  10. Yes I know these too and buy them regularly because they are high in vitamins. For example, prickly pears contain magnesium, calcium and vitamins E, C and B. These are important for many processes in the body : magnesium, for example, has a positive influence on nerve and muscle cells, heart activity as well as bones and teeth. Vitamin C, among other things, supports the immune system. So a very healthy fruit. The taste is a bit like an apple and a pear. Greetings, Tine
