Prickly pear belongs to cactus genus of plants and it is native on Rhodes and the whole Mediterranean basin. It is also known as Opuntia and it can reach to 3-5m high although it has not a trunk but strong leaves. It produce fruits as you can sea in this image that they are very tasteful.

Thank you all for your votes and your comments in my last upload. All are appreciated!

I saw some of these once--- at a castle in Portugal-- They would deter me from trying to climb to the walls!
