The Wisdom of Fruit - Prickly Pear

✨"Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them." Hugh Miller. We are creative beings able to find solutions, I focus on finding ways through the wall of spikes✨Prickly Pears / Ficus-Indica originate from the Americas and slowly made their way into other areas of the world. There at least 18 species of this beautiful fruit. Both the fruit and the pads are edible and have considerable healing properties. Sweet and fleshy with numerous seeds. Flavour is delicate and varies in intensity, watermelon, strawberry, banana with hints of citrus and honey. I was obsessed with these are a child and kind of still am 😁. Be sure to try them if you're ever in Sicily.
