    Apparently its great for several medical problems such as diabetes. Also one of the most effective 'cooling' products you can have.
    I have about 50sqm of the prickly pears (cactus fruits) I'm considering harvesting them and making drinks or something for the local market.

    Thanks John for the desert garden videos. I live near Phoenix and it is a real trial to grow here. Started my fall/winter garden incorporating many of your ideas for raised beds, compost, rock dust, drip watering system, and tunnels. Added a trial plot with mykoriza. Excited to see how if it makes a different. Keep those desert videos coming! Love them!

    Nice to see that Big Bird has diversified outside of the hood. Perhaps Oscar the Grouch is tending to the compost pile. LOL.

    Some may be "ripe" when green. So color may not be the "best" indicator, but can be used as an indicator. One sure-fire indicator for me has been if it is easily removed, or "drops" off the plant naturally.

    NO!!! They are NOT GMO. GMO is when you introduce OTHER species of plants/animals that would have NOT naturally been there in the first place. I hope to have a field trip to one of the "masters" who have "created" some of these awesome natural "selection" type crosses within plants that COULD (but probably would not) occur naturally. I believe these type of crosses, are fine, although not better than "wild" grown or occuring fruits – which are much lower in sugar.. and have more fiber..

    @KingRyltar I get you now. My fault.

  • Ron Kolesa 4 years ago

    @Thaneii You missed the pt on #4…reread it…surely John got the gist of the joke.
    He is a great guy! Love his video's..Obviously he also has a sense of humor, and look forward to his next video..

  • Thaneii 4 years ago

    @KingRyltar Well you're a brave soul. When I posted some friendly advice, I had a hate email campaign persecuting me. I have to say that #1, John likes to gesticulate, and it's more fun than a monotonous talking head, so I have to disagree with that. #2. I agree, don't chew and talk. #3 and #4. From watching many of his other postings, I 'm sure he knows about these matters. If anything, he is the last person to tell to build to the soil, since that is the core of his own home growing.

    at least you guys dont have florida insects!!!!

    It would be nice if the spineless variety of the prickly pear (Opuntia ficus-indica var. inermis) had been shown. It is massively grown in Mexico and Brazil.

  • GOONIE H 4 years ago

    HI JOHN, Great episode i was wondering if the ultra dwarf peach and nectarine like honey babe and necta zees fall under the category of (GMO)? If so what would be your take on trees like that.

  • John Doe 4 years ago

    Yeah thanks for the desert trips. Sure is tricky growing out here with the dry heat, winds, critters that eat anything green, etc.
