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!

George

Lots of these in Arizona. People make prickly pear jelly. And, it's very good. Nice shot.
