I was collecting them at the same time, so I combined the footage into one long video. Also, I have included some animal encounters, that you might want to see. If that’s the case, stay with me to the end and don’t fall asleep. OK This was filmed in Tonopah, Arizona. This video was filmed with an old SONY Cyber-shot, model DSC-P73. Here are the names of the cacti fruit that are shown in this video: Echinocactus texensis – Texas Horse Crippler Pachycereus marginatus – Mexican Fence Post Trichocereus candicans – (or Echinopsis candicans) I have also included an image of some Hedgehog fruit. The name is Echinocereus triglochidiatus – Claret Cup Hedgehog Here is the link to the crested cactus video project. It is an assemblage of many plants and it is a good long video. Please take about an hour of your valuable time to watch it Thanks FEATHEREDFAN Channel: Video Rating: / 5

    It would be awesome if you could describe the flavor and sweetness level of the fruits for those of us interested in their edibility. Thanks

    Please tell me what was your favorite from these 3 pickle pear ? If you remember also..please tell me how was the flavor ? Was good as a dragon fruit ?
    I'm asking because I want to know..
    I live in Romania and I would like to plant some cactus that bear fruit,I order this week some cactus seeds(peruvian apple) and I'm hoping that they bear fruits in the summer cuz winter here is to cold to bear fruits.

    WOw. You;re lucky to have so many bees!
    Wondering; are you seeing them, this year?
    The flowers are beautiful.
    I walk the neighborhood in AUstin, a lot, and I see a lot of prickly-pears. But, we're missing bees in the last couple of years, and I am worried we won't see many flowering cacti for a lot longer. I pick up the nopales that fall off and plant them, indoors…, then watch them go crazy in one of my pots. They make these weird ribbon-like nopales. Last season, one of them was about 30 inches long and then grew more babies before the whole thing fell off. I'm going to try and save the ones that fall off, this time, by putting them in the dark in dry soil.
    You could probably help me with that.
    I have some bad videos up of my weird cacti nopales on my channel.
    WISH we had bees, for sure, even in the house. I had a couple of flowers, this year, and I pollinated them with a tooth-pick. Will see how that helps, if at all..

    You have to love and admire the beauty and diversity of fruit the cactus produces. I remember going out as a kid and gathering prickly pear. Thanks for the video!
