Barbary Fig

The fruit of the prickly pear cactus. Pinkish-yellow in color and usually covered in tiny, sharp hairs which can be very irritating to the skin. The flesh is sweet and with seedy, these can be sieved out or eaten with the fruit. They taste vaguely like cucumber and can be eaten raw sprinkled with lime juice. They are a good addition to a fruit salad.
