Springtime landscape of flowers, olive trees and giant prickly pear cactus, Marrakech, Morocco

Opuntia is a genus in the cactus family, Cactaceae. Prickly pears typically grow with flat, rounded cladodes (also called platyclades) armed with two kinds of spines, large, smooth, fixed spines and small, hairlike prickles called glochids, that easily penetrate skin and detach from the plant. The fruit of prickly pears, commonly called cactus fruit, cactus fig, Indian fig, nopales or tuna in Spanish, is edible, although it must be peeled carefully to remove the small spines on the outer skin before consumption. If the outer layer is not properly removed, glochids can be ingested, causing discomfort of the throat, lips, and tongue, as the small spines are easily lodged in the skin
