Our cactus plant has a bazillion of these plums on it, but apparently there was a miscommunication somewhere along the line.
Judie do you use these plums? I can hardly wait for them to be available for purchasing again. I use in my smoothies.
There must be a thousand of them in the front yard. I touched one of them once and got full of stickers. How do you deal with that?
There’s one in every bunch!
And they all live here!
It makes the world an interesting place, and I’ll bet your place is as interesting as it gets!!!
It’s a laugh a minute! ;->
You have fresh prickly pears? How lucky! They are great. You have to use gloves when cutting them, and they have lots of grains inside, but they are so delicious and extremely healthy. It’s best to eat them cold.
You can also pass the pulp through a medium sieve and make wonderful sauces or Popsicle with it.
I tried with gloves, and then the gloves were all full of stickers! I’ll see what I can do to investigate their use. There is quite a crop out there. The cactus itself takes up about a fourth of our front yard and gets bigger every year.
I think the deer and the javelina come at night to feast, but there are so many that they hardly make a dent in the number of plums.
It also helps to roll them in the sand after cutting, and then wash the unpeeled fruit.
Sand? Hmmm. There is a big supply of sand in the back alley. This could be a fun challenge! ;->
Hmmm. . .you don’t suppose. . .could that one be a “glum plum”? Just asking. . .
“Back Alley”, eh? Bwa-ha-ha-ha
Not everyone has a golf course in their backyard!
So many of them!
