- The Indian Fig prickly pear is grown for food in Mexico and many other places.
- Its large fruits are called tunas and taste like very sweet watermelon. (see third small photo below main photo above)
- Instead of having thick, long [green] stems, these cacti have flat, paddle-shaped stems.
- Young [green] paddles are also eaten.
