Edible Cactus

Edibe CactusEdible cactus is a type of vegetable that is popular in Mexico and other Central American countries, parts of Europe, the Middle East, India, North Africa and Australia.

Edible cactus is characterized by its fleshy oval leaves (typically called pads or paddles) of the prickly pear cactus. With a soft but crunchy texture that also becomes a bit sticky when cooked, edible cactus tastes similar to a slightly tart green bean, asparagus, or green pepper.

In Mexico, there are more than 350 different kinds of edible cactus dishes. These pictures are taken at the Miermoa Puerto Vallarta, a famous area in Mexico where edible cactus are grown.
