These plants could help you to survive by providing food, water and shade. One plant in particular, the Prickly Pear Cactus, commonly found is desert and mediterranean environments is a great source of liquids i.e. water!

    Spelling mistake corrected. Cheers. Have never heard of it being used in an omelet but I'll be sure to give it a try next time I'm out there.

    Great video! Sorry, but the word "arid" that means dry, has one letter "R" The other word is a product name LOL. I often eat cactus fruit, but I like to collect the seeds. Prickly Pear pads are best fried in omelets and mostly just the new, youngest pads. The spines and glochids should be scraped off first. Also, the fruit is great when ripe! Thanks

    @Smith28Adventure Yep – Ive been to Cyprus before. Also, I regularly eat the majority of these fruits/nuts and vegetables that I identify in this video. Hence the familiarity. I always take an interest in the plants and animals
    of any country I visit.
