Collection: September Opuntia Picks - Delicious Fruit! - Rooted

We love juicing our prickly pear fruit!  We can the juice to have for use all season-long.  Prickly pear juice is wonderful for making jelly, margaritas, sorbet, and candy.  This summer for our numerous garden tours, we offered fresh-squeezed lemonade flavored and tinted pink with prickly pear juice.  The unique flavor of the cactus comes through beautifully in the lemonade. 

Try these cold hardy prickly pear varieties for fruit production.
