IT’S PRICKLY PEAR HARVESTING SEASON!

Prickly Pear, cactus fruit, tuna (Spanish), figure de Barbary (French) – whatever name you call it - this delicious plant has much to offer and is ripe for the picking! Late summer through early winter, September through December, is the peak season for Prickly Pears in the Northern hemisphere. The Prickly Pear fruit, actually a berry, has been used to treat diabetic issues, gastrointestinal problems, sunburn, and cold symptoms. The leaves of the Texas Prickly Pear Cactus, known as Nopalitos are a staple in many dishes. The deep red fruit, used to make jam, jelly, sorbet, wine, and margaritas, is also a fan-favorite Me & the Bees Lemonade flavor.

Me and the Bees - Prickly Pear season

Wondering where this plant can be found? It grows in the western areas of the United States as well as South America, Africa, Australia, and the Mediterranean. Just be mindful of those prickly thorns when you are harvesting yours!
